Restructuring & Insolvency

Supporting change,
paving the way for new beginnings.

When things don’t work out the way they should, you need someone who has a plan. At GSK Stockmann, we have a team of experts who find successful solutions even for the most complex restructuring and insolvency scenarios. 

Severe time pressure, great uncertainty, together with a loss of trust are some of the common characteristics of crises – and often investors are afraid of being held personally liable or losing all their money. This is where we step in. We advise, for example, managing directors and shareholders on ways to avoid liability risks, or assist with registering and protecting creditor claims if a customer becomes insolvent. 

When working on clients’ complex restructuring deals, we find tailor-made and often creative solutions. We combine our expertise with the sector knowledge that our firm has acquired in a wide range of sectors. 

Our experts not only have a thorough understanding of your business, but also the market in which you operate and your remit – so that everything goes according to plan as quickly as possible.
