Contestation Rights

Insolvency law provides extensive contestation rights, which allow an insolvency administrator, in particular, to claw back payments made by the insolvent company before the opening of insolvency proceedings.

We assist insolvency administrators in enforcing such claims of the insolvency estate in Germany and abroad. And we advise creditors in defending such contestation claims.

Particularly in cross-border cases, we draw on our cross-border know-how and our network abroad in order to realize the rights of the insolvency estate even where orders of German courts have no effect.
