Comment: HL comes recommended for financial restructuring and corporate rescue and, like Gleiss Lutz or Clifford Chance, is an example of how long-term activity across the whole insolvency and restructuring market is a successful strategy at present. With a ramped-up associate base, HL was involved in a plethora of instructions. The tradition in insolvency-related litigation remains successful; for the administrator in the potentially scandalous Müller-Brot insolvency, HL reviewed and asserted legal challenges. Work with non-performing loans, which passes many firms by, despite the German clients in this field, leads to numerous major transactions for HL.
