Gestützt auf die Tatbestände der Insolvenzanfechtung können Insolvenzverwalter unter Umständen noch nach vielen Jahren erhebliche Beträge von Ihnen zurückverlangen. Stellen Sie daher rechtzeitig die Weichen, um sich auf eine mögliche Insolvenz Ihrer Geschäftspartner und die drohenden unkalkulierbaren Risiken für die Vertragsbeziehungen vorzubereiten. Christian Fuhst und Ansgar Hain, Rechtsanwälte und Insolvenzverwalter bei GvW Graf von Westphalen, erklären Ihnen, wie Sie sich als Gläubiger vor solchen Rückforderungen in der Insolvenz schützen können.

What does the regular workday for an attorney in a commercial law firm look like? We accompanied the Hamburg attorney Melanie Eilers for one day with the camera: department meeting, meetings with clients, court hearing – the specialist for construction and architectural law is on the road a lot.
