Insolvency law & restructuring

Our specialists guarantee top-level legal advice. This means home-field advantage in tackling every challenge, thanks to the persistence and absolute commitment of our powerful team.

The Challenge

We advise clients in all areas of reorganisation and restructuring as well as with respect to insolvency law issues. Providing comprehensive advice to companies and creditors in the context of restructuring or prior to the actual insolvency occurring can reduce collateral damage. We lead restructuring negotiations on behalf of all insolvent parties. fwp’s work in this area also includes the acquisition of companies from insolvent estates, their reorganisation and their return to profitability.

Our Expertise

We have been advising banks and banking consortia on structured financings and restructuring financings for many years.

Among our core areas of expertise are the establishing of the legal basis for the consortia, the administration of the syndicates and their further development as well as the providing of continuing support on this basis. We also advise companies in respect of the issuance of bonds, participation rights, mezzanine capital and other financing instruments.

Our Team

The team led by Markus Fellner and Florian Kranebitter works in close cooperation with the firm’s corporate transaction teams. The overlapping of the leadership of the teams has proven to be highly efficient, particularly where distressed asset transactions and restructurings are concerned.
