Insolvency – consulting, audit, expert opinions

Our advisory services cover the whole range of economic aspects in connection with the preparation and the performance of insolvency proceedings. Depending on the type of the insolvency proceeding and the stage of the process, our services are provided to the entrepreneur/the company or the insolvency administrator and the creditors:

  • Questions relating to the entrepreneur’s duty to file for insolvency and, if required, support in preparing the insolvency application
  • Expert opinions for insolvency administrators and assistance with insolvency plans
  • Support for creditors and creditors’ committees in respect of compliance with their duties

Consulting in the preparation of or during insolvency proceedings requires a high level of flexibility and experience. Successful insolvency proceedings have to be tailored to the situation at hand. In order to manage the very specific situation of insolvency, taking measures in time – sometimes involving several parties – is indispensable. Through our long-standing expertise in providing advice and expert opinions to companies of various sizes and from different industries, we have developed and implemented crisis and insolvency strategies together with their stakeholders. These strategies have successfully secured the company’s going concern and improved the creditors’ return on investment.
