Insolvency litigation and liability in a crisis

Insolvency proceedings frequently involve disputes.  

Especially litigation about setting aside transactions in insolvency is involved in all insolvency proceedings.  We advise insolvency administrators on the enforcement of setting aside transactions and opponents to setting aside transactions when defending against claims based on setting aside transactions in insolvency.

We have excellent expertise in defending board members against claims of liability asserted by insolvency administrators.  We advise here about all issues of corporate law, tax law, criminal law and insolvency law that arise in this context, and we especially also have the knowledge in the area of directors & officers liability insurance which is often necessary in this regard.

Our main services:

  • Liability of board members / directors & officers liability insurance
  • Representation of insolvency administrators and opponents in cases involving the setting aside of transactions in insolvency
  • Insolvency administrator liability
  • Liability of advisors in a crisis
  • Disputes involving separation of assets and separate satisfaction
