Deutschland > Restrukturierung und Insolvenz > Restrukturierung

Die insolvenzrechtliche Beratung von GSK Stockmann ist insbesondere auf die Schnittstelle zu Immobilien und Fonds ausgelegt und weist eine eindeutige Sektorenspezialisierung auf die Bereiche Hotellerie, Einzelhandel und Mode auf. Dementsprechend war man im Zuge der Covid-19-Krise oftmals mit Mietnachtragsforderungen und Mietkürzungsverlangen von Insolvenzverwaltern beschäftigt. Über die Schnittstelle zum Banken- und Aufsichtsrecht konnte man sich zudem in den Bereichen der Fondsliquidierung und des Abwicklungsrechts für Banken etablieren; hierfür ist Okko Hendrik Behrends ein zentraler Kontakt. Die beiden Praxisgruppenleiter Andreas Dimmling und Raoul Kreide betreuen unter anderem Distressed M&A-Transaktionen, Fondsrestrukturierungen und Gewerbe-Mieterinsolvenzen.

Germany > Restructuring and insolvency > Restructuring

GSK Stockmann‘s insolvency law advice focuses on the interface to real estate and funds and centers on the sectors hotel, retail and fashion. Accordingly, demands for rent supplements and rent reductions from insolvency administrators were particularly prominent topics in the course of the Covid-19 crisis. The team also has expertise at the interface with banking and supervisory law, thus increasingly advising on fund liquidation and bank insolvency law; Okko Hendrik Behrends is a key contact here. Practice group heads Andreas Dimmling and Raoul Kreide cover distressed M&A transactions, fund restructuring as well as commercial and private tenant insolvencies, among others.
