Leading german insolvency law firm launches in London

Schultze & Braun, Germany’s largest insolvency law specialists, has launched an office in London, reflecting the City’s emerging position as the corporate restructuring hub of Europe. 

With 29 offices in Germany and France, Schultze & Braun’s latest development is aimed at further building its international insolvency practice, which comprises more than 70 professionals including lawyers, auditors, tax consultants and sworn accountants and 430 other employees.  Initially the office in Throgmorton Street, close to the Bank of England, will be run by Dr Annerose Tashiro and Dr Volker Beissenhirtz. 

Annerose Tashiro, head of Cross-Border Restructuring & Insolvencies, specialises in corporate reorganisation, distressed investments, transnational insolvency laws and liability issues in cross-border cases.  She advises creditors, creditor bodies and investors, as well as debtors and their affiliates. Previously she worked for both Clifford Chance and Haarman Hemmelrath in Germany and Japan.

Volker Beissenhirtz specialises in business recovery schemes, and advises both debtors and creditors when facing insolvency or other crises.  He has represented various European companies in the insolvency proceedings of their former German subsidiaries, and has also advised on areas including M&A, corporate restructuring and general corporate law.

Dr Eberhard Braun senior partner at Schultze & Braun said: “This office has been planned for some time and reflects our growing flow of international work from City institutions and hedge funds.  With market expectations that Europe will face a record wave of corporate restructuring later this year or in early 2008, the office emphasises our ability to provide the highest levels of international legal advice and service quality to investors, creditors and businesses in London.”
