Crisis consulting

The respective dual qualifications of Stephan Schmitt and Robert Schillinger as business graduate and lawyer form an excellent basis for the provision of legal advice from Rödl & Partner in Munich in the following areas: 
  • Preparation of complex restructuring concepts to achieve moratoria (Plan A)
  • Preparation and support for restructuring solutions with the aid of insolvency (Plan B)
  • Consulting services for managing directors and shareholders in order to avoid personal liability
  • Asset protection (concepts to secure company assets).
     
Together with our clients, we develop a sound basis for making decisions which frequently involves legal considerations and the subsequent formulation of a coherent contract by a legally qualified person. The ability to offer a one-stop shop for this range of requirements is beneficial for large and small projects.
 

Complex litigation

Company crises usually lead to conflicts (involving an insolvency administrator, shareholders, etc.). This is the main focus of the team around Stephan Schmitt who has more than 30 years of experience in the management of civil proceedings. A special area of expertise is concerned with the processing of complex legal and commercial facts for civil courts and to develop litigation tactics. The main points here include:
  • Capital investments, fund participation (representation of investors and also initiators)
  • Real estate  (developers, building contractors, general contractors),
  • Production facilities (e.g. problems with defects in the production of plant),
  • Liability for professionals, management boards and managing directors (also on recommendation of liability insurance and D&O insurance).
 
Nowadays civil disputes frequently have an international background. This is where the extensive knowledge of foreign languages of the department handling the proceedings and the inclusion of our colleagues from the international offices of Rödl & Partner is very advantageous to clients (one-stop shop for proceedings).
