The experts in our Restructuring Practice Group represent shareholders, international distressed investors, trustees, governmental authorities, management boards, supervisory boards, and buyers and sellers of distressed loans. With an interdisciplinary approach, our restructuring practice has established a unique market position in Austria. We advise our clients mainly on complex transactions requiring a high level of expertise and experience in corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, finance, and real estate law.

E+H also has a wealth of experience in advising on the debtor side, especially automotive suppliers, textile chains, the banking sector, and the building materials sector. Many clients turn to us because our Corporate/M&A, Financing, and Real Estate Business groups occupy a strong position in the Austrian and international restructuring markets. Building on this strength, E+H has developed into a Tier 1 firm for Restructuring, as evidenced by the quantity and quality of our domestic and international clients.
