Changing perspectives

Internationalisation, the European Single Market – in an age of globalisation, the economy is shaped by complex interrelationships. Companies in financial distress often face legal questions that are difficult to unravel. Schultze & Braun gives its clients a home advantage – worldwide.

We support German companies with their activities abroad. Where necessary, we actively manage restructuring or insolvency processes or assert the company’s interests in court. In many cases, a rapid and accurate estimate of the risks alone is a valuable decision-making tool for our clients.

Naturally, we also advise and represent non-distressed companies in relation to their cross-border business activities. Dual registration and further qualifications also enable us to act for and actively support clients in other jurisdictions.

Schultze & Braun plans, structures and coordinates main and secondary insolvency proceedings within the EU. The entry into force of the original EU Insolvency Regulation and the recast regulation in 2015 opened up new scope for action and fresh opportunities. Thanks to our corporate structure and expertise, we are well placed to exploit these opportunities on behalf of our clients.

Outside the EU member states subject to the Insolvency Regulation, we regularly represent German companies undergoing restructuring, as well as insolvency administrators and creditors, regarding the effect of financial distress and insolvency in Germany on their assets and interests in Switzerland, Denmark and Norway. Although the EU Insolvency Regulation does not apply in these countries, we can provide effective support to our clients there as they assert, realise or defend their legal and financial interests.

Der EU-Almanach von Schultze & Braun

Im Juni 2019 hat die Europäische Union mit der EU-Richtlinie 2019/1023 eine Mindestharmonisierung der einzelnen nationalen Insolvenzrechte in den Mitgliedstaaten auf den Weg gebracht. Der Präventive Restrukturierungsrahmen stellt ein vorinsolvenzliches Sanierungsverfahren als neues Werkzeug für die Sanierung von Unternehmen zur Verfügung, quasi eine Sanierung ohne Insolvenz. Trotz Mindestharmonisierung ist aber auch nach der EU-Richtlinie die Rechtslage zur Unternehmensrettung und -erhaltung in jedem EU-Land unterschiedlich. Der EU-Almanach von Schultze & Braun zeigt die landesspezifischen Maßnahmen der Bereiche Restrukturierung, Eigen­verwaltung und Sanierung auf. Komfortabel und übersichtlich.
Der EU-Almanach wird regelmäßig aktualisiert und um Informationen zur Rechtslage weiterer EU-Länder ergänzt.
