On March 1, 2012, new legislation came into force that bundles several German insolvency law reform efforts to make the restructuring of companies in financial crisis much easier.

The Act for the Further Facilitation of the Restructuring of Companies (ESUG) will increase the influence of creditors in insolvency proceedings; it is expected to reduce the numbers of companies going into liquidation in the future. It is also expected to make it easier to plan and predict the outcome of insolvency proceedings in Germany.

Please join Marco Wilhelm and Rainer Markfort from our German offices on April 12 when they will discuss these developments and their likely impact on the daily practice of insolvency in Germany.
