Lawyers for Distressed M&A

With around 250 lawyers specialising in M&A in Germany alone, CMS has one of the largest practice groups in this field. Our lawyers for distressed M&A enjoy a particularly strong reputation.

Given how crucial it is to act quickly and effectively in crisis situations, our lawyers for distressed M&A work closely with experts from other areas. Alongside advice on corporate law structuring, this primarily involves leveraging our knowledge of employment law, restructuring and insolvency, financing and tax. Our lawyers not only have proven expertise in supporting buyers and sellers on transactions both within Germany and beyond, they are also highly experienced in advising insolvency administrators on sales out of insolvency. This applies to restructuring by way of transfer of assets (asset deals) and equally to the sale of a company on the basis of an insolvency plan. 

Our lawyers for distressed M&A have a deep understanding of the interests and needs of the parties involved in a company sale or acquisition in a crisis. We advise you every step of the way in a distressed M&A transaction – from analysis and planning through all the necessary preparations to the actual negotiations and implementation of all relevant measures. Importantly, you also benefit from our extensive network of more than 1,000 M&A-specialised lawyers worldwide with regard to your distressed M&A matter. 

Further down this page are the contact details of our lawyers for distressed M&A. Feel free to contact us at any time.
