Comment: This firm highly recommended for corporate rescue made it its mission to intensify the ties between restructuring and other practices. Cases like Singulus or Greiffenberger, as well as new bank instructions, show how this is already working in terms of the finance and capital markets experts. The partner appointment of Dr. Nikolai Warneke, who boasts mixed finance/restructuring experience, is a prime example of the sustainability of this combination. A partner appointment in employment and the high utilization rate enjoyed by the litigation practice in insolvency issues demonstrate how broad corporate rescue work is. This was the key to Noerr standing its ground in the market of late. In Noerr Consulting, the firm had a feel for the market’s operational crisis management needs early on, as shown by the fact that Pluta and Anchor are setting up similar outfits.
