Dr. Maximilian Pluta

Dr. Maximilian Pluta is managing partner of PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH and managing director of PLUTA Management GmbH. He is Head of Restructuring. As an attorney, tax consultant and graduate in Business Administration, he has already supported numerous major companies during turnarounds and restructuring processes or during preparations for debtor-in-possession proceedings. His main practice areas are automotive, engineering, logistics, renewable energies, construction, shipyards, finance (emission house), retail and fashion.

He specialises in drafting and implementing restructuring or liquidation plans, primarily from a commercial and a legal point of view. His expertise also includes performing distressed due diligence reviews or providing advice and support during M&A processes. In-depth preparations and successful implementation of debtor-in-possession proceedings (including “protective shield” proceedings) require not only extensive experience in restructuring and turning around companies, but also comprehensive knowledge of insolvency law. Maximilian can fall back on his project experience at one of the world’s largest auditing companies to the same extent as on his experience in insolvency proceedings gained at PLUTA.
