In addition to consultation on issues involving labour or company law during restructuring measures and the creation of integrated corporate plans, distressed due diligence reviews and restructuring concepts in accordance with the IDW S6 standard, we also provide support during M&A processes. Moreover, we also ensure comprehensive controlling and provide experienced interim managers in order to guarantee success. In other words, we help companies to overcome crises.
Value preservation by means of continuing business operations, increasing insolvency estate by means of comprehensive analysis and assertion of claims pursuant to insolvency law – these are our principles. Regardless of the sector, the main product focus or the size of the company, we implement insolvency plans expertly and methodically. This is how we lead companies safely through the crisis.
Our core area of expertise includes drafting legally sound contracts with reference to company law, labour law, tax law, insolvency law as well as bank and capital market law. Furthermore, we provide protection against third-party claims by means of representation, both in court and out of court, or in a court of arbitration. We also specialise in legal consulting in German-Spanish oder German-Italian proceedings. In this way, we ensure the economic success of a company.
Rooted in Germany – at Home in the World
An international context or approach is a matter of course to us. No matter whether insolvency proceedings with international creditors, restructuring projects involving production facilities in several countries or contract drafting for buying and selling companies abroad are concerned – the global orientation of many companies and their cross-border commitments require qualified management services in each case. In Europe, we offer professional advice and implementation of your projects on a cross-border basis from a single source. For this, our international desks ensure that your projects are coordinated as part of a holistic approach. In Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain, the PLUTA attorneys and restructuring experts will ensure your success as nationals of the relevant country who have a fluent knowledge of the language concerned.
Moreover, PLUTA is a member of the international network BTG Global Advisory. BTG GA is a reliable partner of many leading banks, law firms, private equity and other fund management companies as well as of debtors and creditors’ committees, companies and other organisations threatened by a crisis, whose geographic focus is on Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and South Africa. Nine companies are currently working closely together in this network around the world.
