Dr Ruth Rigol and her three-member team have moved to PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH with effect from 1 July 2018. She will be in charge of the Cologne branch office together with the attorney Mr Stefan Conrads.
Since 2004, Dr Rigol had been a partner at the law firm DR RINGSTMEIER & COLLEAGUES, which stopped its activities on 30 June 2018. The attorney will continue to be active as a consultant and as an insolvency administrator and monitor in Cologne, Bonn and Hagen. The 44-year-old attorney specialising in insolvency and labour law has many years of experience in restructuring companies. She is active at an association level and is a member of the Committee on Insolvency Law of the German Bar Association (DAV) and also a member of the executive committee of the DAV’s Insolvency and Restructuring working group. Moreover, she is also a lecturer at Düsseldorf Business School and at the University of Münster for the Master’s course in Business Law and Restructuring.
“I am really looking forward to working together in the future and completing the tasks ahead. PLUTA is in an ideal market position for further expansion thanks to the three areas of restructuring, insolvency administration and legal advice. In addition to Germany-wide activities, the law firm’s international orientation is also very interesting and provides potential for future growth,” explained Dr Rigol.
In fact, with more than 40 branch offices and over 400 employees in Germany, Spain, Italy and Poland, PLUTA is one of the largest insolvency and restructuring companies and continues to be on an expansion course. Moreover, the law firm is a member of the international network BTG Global Advisory.
In recent years, Dr Rigol has supervised many major proceedings. In 2014, she oversaw the proceedings for the hospital in Eitorf in her role as insolvency monitor. In 2015, she was the insolvency monitor and subsequently the administrator for the hospital in Altena. In 2016, she supervised the proceedings for Promod Deutschland GmbH, a clothing retailer operating throughout Germany with 74 branches in 52 towns and cities, in the position as the insolvency monitor. The restructuring expert was also the insolvency administrator of the well-known digital post-production company Pictorion Das Werk.
