Restructuring & Insolvency

Supporting change,
paving the way for new beginnings.

When things don’t work out the way they should, you need someone who has a plan. At GSK Stockmann, we have a team of experienced legal advisers who find successful solutions even for the most complex restructuring and insolvency scenarios.

Severe time pressure, great uncertainty, together with a loss of trust are some of the common characteristics of crises – and often investors are afraid of being held personally liable or losing all their money. This is where we step in. We advise, for example, managing directors and shareholders on ways to avoid liability risks, or assist with registering and protecting creditor claims if a customer becomes insolvent.

When working on clients’ complex restructuring deals, we find tailor-made and often creative solutions. We combine many years of expertise with sector knowledge that our firm has acquired in a wide range of sectors, including the public sector, real estate and  funds.

Our experts not only have a thorough understanding of you, but also the market in which you operate and your remit – so that everything goes according to plan as quickly as possible.

We have particular expertise in the following areas:

  • Restructuring and reorganising medium-sized businesses
  • Funds structures in crisis and insolvency situations
  • Restructuring and insolvency related to real estate
  • Representing clients before the courts in defending and enforcing crisis-specific claims such as managing directors’ liability and insolvency claw-back
  • Advising insolvency administrators on complex issues of insolvency proceedings, for example in corporate law, state aid law and banking law
  • Liquidation and alternative methods for winding down companies
  • Tax law on restructuring
  • Labour laws which apply to restructuring
  • Distressed M&A
  • Restructuring complex loans
  • Realisation of collateral
  • Supporting family businesses in crisis scenarios

“The GSK Restructuring Team provided spot-on analyses packed with powerful and pertinent content. What particularly impressed me, however, was the respectful approach that paved the way

for constructive solutions without giving up its own position. If ever I have to assert complex claims again, I shall definitely rely on the expertise of GSK.”
