Insolvency and Restructuring

circle light

Graf & Pitkowitz’s Alexander Isola and Stefan Weileder, together with their team, have long been a leading firm for insolvency, restructuring and reorganization. We regularly advise on in and out of court restructuring and reorganization measures, as well as on all matters of insolvency law, including: capital maintenance, insolvency challenge rights, loan security structures, and collaterals. In recent years, we have advised on almost every major insolvency and restructuring case in Austria – on many occasions as insolvency administrator, otherwise as advisor to debtors, creditors, and investors.

Key–strength areas of our practice include advising creditors and debtors on complex insolvency and restructuring situations and, in particular on “insolvency administration”. Our attorneys are regularly appointed by the courts as insolvency administrators – this allows for our particularly reflective debt counselling and helps avoid D&O liability.

Furthermore, we have extensive expertise in complex refinancing negotiations with banks and advising investors on the purchase of distressed companies (Distressed M&A). We work in cross-functional teams. If pertinent for the individual case, we work closely with specialized lawyers from the relevant areas of expertise.

Alexander Isola is head of the law group – he is ranked among the top lawyers in his field in Austria in all relevant rankings and handbooks.
