Joachim Kühne provides expert insolvency administration advice and assistance with national and international distressed mergers and acquisitions transactions. He regularly advises on self-administration proceedings as chief restructuring officer or trustee. Joachim counsels managing directors and management board members prior to and during insolvencies in order to identify and minimise personal liability risks. He advises shareholders in Germany as well as abroad throughout all stages of a corporate crisis.

Joachim has drawn up numerous insolvency plans for his clients and assisted them with out-of-court liquidations. He helps creditors asserting and enforcing their rights and represents them either prior to or during the insolvencies of their contractual partners or as a member of the creditors‘ committee.

Joachim, who has been a partner since 2001, joined CMS in 1996.
