Changing market requirements mean that companies have to make structural changes. Successful restructuring ranges from the optimisation of corporate structures through to overcoming a fundamental company crisis.

Being able to emerge from a crisis stronger than before, with a solid, future-oriented financial and corporate structure, requires a comprehensive approach as well as special expertise. The best business management skills, experience in handling complex legal situations, frequently the ability to refocus on a company’s core strengths and always to find individual, tailored solutions: these are the basics for a successful restructuring.

Our services cover all the steps necessary for restructuring – from the analysis, the creation of financial transparency, the development of a restructuring concept right through to the implementation of restructuring measures. Even under extreme time pressure, which is usually the case in times of crisis, our experts make sure that action can be taken.

For cross-border situations, our clients can benefit from the knowledge of the restructuring experts in the international Mazars partnership. Where required, our restructuring experts in Germany work closely with our international partners.
