Comment: This firm highly recommended for corporate rescue and recommended for insolvency administration pressed ahead with the sustainable growth it is known for: the Munich office gained weight with two partner appointments, bolstering the interface between civil law restructuring and ?criminal law. One prominent case in this context was the defense of Schlecker family members in criminal proceedings. Although many insolvency firms conduct litigation, this criminal law expertise is a USP. GB knows the auto supply industry like few others and has played a number of roles for years, incl. corporate rescue advice with or without trusteeship, insolvency administration and now also CRO. The frequent proposals for trustee roles, now from across Germany, demonstrate the firm’s high regard, even outside of this sector.
Strengths: Corporate rescue in the Mittelstand; insolvency administration focusing on continuation, even in complex cases.
Recommended: Dr. Thilo Schultze (“excellent, internationally experienced”, competitor), Dr. Volker Muschalle (“renowned specialist”, competitor), Dr. Hans Schenk, Martin Mucha, Dr. Wolfgang Bilgery.
