CMS Advisory – business restructuring advice

Back to Restructuring and Insolvency

Turnaround is becoming more complex

As companies are challenged by changing economic parameters, the complexity of restructuring and rescue is also rising. This increases the need for specific expertise that combines business and legal skills to deliver successful restructuring.

The CMS Advisory business management services provide companies with in-depth restructuring advice to help them address crisis situations and – ideally – to achieve a turnaround. Our clients benefit in particular from seamless integration of business and legal advice across all aspects of restructuring and rescue.

Especially in these difficult times, restructuring advice is becoming increasingly complex and, above all, more wide ranging. Combining business aspects and legal advice is the appropriate response to these more demanding requirements.

Tobias Fusten, Partner

Based on an analysis of the main causes of the crisis, we work closely with company management to develop sustainable proposals to boost earnings. We seek to gradually improve profitability and lay the foundations for increasing the firm’s enterprise value. Our business restructuring advice takes an integrated approach that is not limited to cutting costs. When restructuring and rescuing companies, we look in particular at value chains and the potential for boosting efficiency and making more focused use of resources.
