GRR 30: Gleiss Lutz once again among the top 30 law firms worldwide for restructuring

Renowned industry news and analysis service Global Restructuring Review has again named Gleiss Lutz as one of the 30 most successful law firms worldwide for restructuring. After a year of intensive research, the editorial board presents the top cross-border restructuring and insolvency practices in its GRR 30 ranking. Gleiss Lutz is the lone independent German law firm to be listed in this ranking, which only includes a very small number of independent law firms.

Dr. Andreas Spahlinger, Gleiss Lutz partner and head of its restructuring practice, commented: 

“We are very proud to once again be counted among the 30 most successful restructuring law firms worldwide, especially since the GRR 30 ranking is essentially based on the number, size and global reach of the cases handled, and we are one of the very few independent national law firms to be in the TOP 30 worldwide. Achieving this impressive placement once again underscores the outstanding position of our practice and the success of our full service client offering in the areas of national and cross-border restructuring, financial restructuring and refinancing.”

Gleiss Lutz’s restructuring practice advises on key restructuring and insolvency cases in Germany on a regular basis. For example, it most recently advised on the restructurings of Steag, LEONI, Gerry Weber, SEFE, the Adler Group and the Avaya Group. In the cases of LEONI and Gerry Weber, Gleiss Lutz assisted in the first major restructurings of listed stock corporations under the Corporate Stabilisation and Restructuring Framework Act (StaRUG). 

On 1 January 2022, Gleiss Lutz opened up a new office in London, successfully expanding its position as an advisor in complex, international distressed M&A and restructuring situations. The restructuring practice has been able to play a key role in numerous cross-border restructuring matters, including the Adler Group, Takko, Alloheim, Hurtigruten, Arrival and Accentro, while at the same time establishing new client relationships with renowned international hedge and distressed debt funds.
