CLEMENS’ insolvency and reconstruction department possesses comprehensive skills and experience with handling the specific legal fields, which affect companies in financial crisis.

Companies in financial crisis may benefit from these skills and this expertise in connection with competent legal guidance in negotiations with creditors, including the company’s financial partners.

A reconstruction process may involve application of several different credit schemes, including financial accord schemes or moratorium agreements.

Reconstruction may also entail that the company announces a formal suspension of payments, during which one of CLEMENS’ attorneys is appointed by the bankruptcy court to supervise the case as reconstruction trustee.
