PLUTA wins several international awards

29 January 2021 · Ulm

The PLUTA restructuring company has again been the recipient of multiple awards. The firm has won the Corporate Intl Magazine Global Award in the ‘Restructuring Law Firm of the Year in Germany – 2021’ category. Corporate Intl recognises companies that are global leaders in various fields. In addition to specialist knowledge, performance is also a decisive factor.

At the Corporate America Today Annual Awards 2021, PLUTA received the ‘Global 100 Excellence Award – Firm of the Year’ for its insolvency and restructuring work in Germany. This award is bestowed annually on companies in a range of different industries and recognises top performance at international level.

The M&A Today Global Awards also recognise companies that are leaders in their field of expertise. Their work is judged by a jury according to a number of criteria, including strategic approach, complexity and scope. PLUTA has been named Insolvency & Restructuring Law Firm of the Year in Germany for 2021.

Awards for PLUTA restructuring experts

Finance Monthly Magazine has conferred the ‘Deal Maker of The Year Award 2021’ twice on PLUTA. This annual award recognises transactions in areas such as M&A and restructuring. PLUTA received the first award for the successful investor solution achieved by Mr Torsten Gutmann for D & O Werbe- und Vertriebsservice GmbH last year. The well-known Funke Mediengruppe and another investor took over both of the company’s business operations. All jobs were saved as a result. The second award went to PLUTA for successful purchase agreement negotiations for the Dormacenter shopping centre in Dormagen. Attorney Mr Michael Bremen was involved in these proceedings as insolvency monitor and supported the discussions with investors. Kaufland, which has the most stores of any full-range retailer in Germany, ultimately acquired the shopping centre.

The Leaders League media and rating agency has also published its latest rankings for 2021. PLUTA has made the list in the three areas of insolvency, restructuring and M&A. What’s more, the company has again been included in the Restructuring & Insolvency category of this year’s Who’s Who Legal.

PLUTA also received an award from Statista last year. The German online statistics portal cooperated for a second time with the brandeins business magazine to determine the country’s best tax consultants and public auditors – and PLUTA was included among them.

Mr Michael Pluta, managing director and founder of PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH, said: “We are delighted to have received so many international awards. These highlight to us how significant our work is abroad as well. We will continue to build on this success in the years ahead.”

PLUTA helps companies in legally and economically difficult situations. Since the company was founded in 1982, PLUTA has constantly grown and today has a staff of approximately 500 employees in Germany, Spain and Italy. More than 290 business and management experts, attorneys, business lawyers, tax consultants, public auditors, certified accountants, economists, banking and bookkeeping experts, engineers and insolvency administration specialists, many with multiple qualifications, ensure practicable and economically sound solutions. In particular, PLUTA provides support in restructuring companies affected by a crisis or insolvency and in continuing business operations, if necessary by involving restructuring experts in a responsible role. PLUTA is one of the top enterprises specialising in restructuring and turning around companies, as demonstrated by rankings and awards from INDat, JUVE, The Legal 500, Who’s Who Legal, brandeins and Focus.
