BEITEN BURKHARDT is listed as "TOP Law Firm 2021" in the field of "Restructuring".

(WirtschaftsWoche 2021)

We advise companies and financial institutions on the conditions and scope for restructuring and recapitalization, as well as before and during insolvency. 

We draft the restructuring and recapitalization concepts including the balance sheet and financial structures. We also advise on liquidation, design and assess insolvency plans, negotiate with the relevant tax authorities and draft waivers on taxable recapitalization gains.

Managing bodies of debtor companies can receive information on how to avoid civil and criminal liability. We also provide support to creditors by enforcing their claims and by developing concepts designed to protect them.

Last, but by no means least, we design insolvency resilient restructuring for balance sheets, such as securitisation of receivables, and implement trust arrangements.
