Restructuring

Single source advice during a crisis

There can also be bad times in the life of a company.  We provide services starting at the first indications of a crisis in a company.  We represent either the interests of the actual company that is in crisis, its management, the shareholders or business partners and creditors.

Advice on restructuring is often complex and requires knowledge in a wide range of areas of the law.  Advice in a crisis involving corporate law, finance, labor law, tax law and capital markets law is part of our daily business in a restructuring.  GvW Graf von Westphalen, as a full service law firm, provides practiced and experienced teams which competently handle all issues in a restructuring scenario under extreme time pressure.
