Changing perspectives

The Schultze & Braun UK cross-border team has extensive insolvency and restructuring experience, which is principally used by German companies working with investors and lenders from the UK. Our clients in this area mainly comprise German companies and banks, but also include German insolvency administrators and debtors in possession who value a clear and pragmatic approach and require advice on matters such as a scheme of arrangement, UK administration or liquidation.Members of the Schultze & Braun UK Desk team are also admitted to practise as solicitors in England and Wales, have eight years’ professional experience in the UK, and are registered as Registered European Lawyers by the Law Society in London.
