Having specialist expertise in the aviation, food, financial, insurance, health, automotive and technology industries, the team advised ERGO Versicherungsgruppe on a major restructuring project, and assisted a technology company with the co-ordination of an employee participation procedure in several countries as part of a Societas Europaea (SE) transformation.
