Miriam SimsaSchoenherr (Schönherr Rechtsanwälte)

Schoenherr (Schönherr Rechtsanwälte) is recognised by clients and peers alike for its broad restructuring and insolvency expertise which is routinely called upon by lenders, and increasingly by distressed borrowers, who require assistance with pre-insolvency reorganisations and refinancings. The team has particular experience of the restructuring of financial institutions, while advising buyers on distressed M&A transactions constitutes another key area of strength. Wolfgang Höller, who specialises in insolvency law, debt restructuring and financial litigation, jointly heads the practice with debt restructuring and refinancing specialist Martin Ebner. Miriam Simsa is another key individual and focuses on out-of-court restructurings, distressed M&A and other restructuring-driven transactions across Austria and CEE.
