Germany: Restructuring and insolvency


Within: Restructuring

Baker McKenzie’s five-partner restructuring team advises creditors, debtors, shareholders and insolvency administrators. In recent work, practice heads Holger Ellers and Dorothée Prosteder assisted a foreign industrial producer with the sale of a German subsidiary at risk of insolvency. The group advised another company from the service sector on the acquisition of an insolvent company. In other highlights, it handled a defence against claims arising from the avoidance of insolvency, advised on the corporate and tax restructuring of balance sheets, as well as on the handling of current contracts in connection with a transport sector company’s insolvency. Burkard Göpfert left the firm in November 2017 and joined the renamed employment law boutique KLIEMT.Arbeitsrecht. In 2018, Giannina Kreutz joined Dentons.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the “Lease Law”) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the “Obligations Code”). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the “New Obligations Code”), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
