Distressed M&A

The sale of a company in crisis within the framework of a so-called distressed M&A procedure represents a particular challenge for the M&A process and those involved in the process - in particular due to the specified time restrictions.

This enables us to respond in a targeted and competent manner to the specific requirements of a company sale resulting from insolvency.
