Dentons berät Kreditgeber und Gläubiger – darunter überwiegend Finanzinstitutionen und Investoren – zu Konsortialdarlehen, Distressed M&A-Transaktionen, Eigenverwaltungen und Schutzschirmverfahren. Einen besonderen Namen konnte man sich im Treuhandschaftsbereich und in der Koordination von Schuldscheindarlehensgläubigern machen. So übernimmt auch Andreas Ziegenhagen, der gemeinsam mit Arne Friel die Praxis leitet, regelmäßig Treuhandschaften in Krisen- und Sanierungsfällen sowie die Rolle des Generalbevollmächtigten in Eigenverwaltungsverfahren. Friel ist an der gesellschaftsrechtlichen Schnittstelle bewandert und in der Beratung von Debt-Equity-Swaps im Insolvenzplan erfahren. Holger Ellers, der im September 2020 von Baker McKenzie einstieg, berät insbesondere zu internationalen Distressed M&A-Transaktionen.
