Risk is part of entrepreneurship and the corporate crisis is often an expression of this risk. We see the support of a crisis mandate as a comprehensive service spanning all areas of law. Our aim is to correctly assess the existing pressure situation from the outset in order to develop economically and legally sound decisions and to help you as a debtor or creditor to achieve a successful strategy.


Recognising the crisis at an early stage and promptly taking the right action is essential for the preservation of values and the continuation of the company. Together with you, we develop concepts and systems to avoid situations that threaten the existence of the company and a possible delay in insolvency. The goal of turnaround consulting is the continuation and recovery of the company.

Advice to management and board members on the subject of restructuring models always takes place in the focus of the fulfillment of obligations under company law. In our day-to-day business, we advise on international issues in particular.


In detail, we offer comprehensive legal advice on:

  • Comprehensive legal and tax advice on the investment of distressed assets, in particular company acquisitions out of insolvency, especially in the context of asset deals,
  • Restructuring of liabilities before, during and after insolvency proceedings,
  • Comprehensive legal advice on distressed bonds,
  • Comprehensive legal and tax advice on insolvency plan proceedings
  • Commercial crisis cause analysis
  • Advice on the rehabilitation strategy
  • Preparation of planning calculations
  • Commercial restructuring support

Advisory services for insolvency advisors

We advise insolvency administrators on complex tax issues in the context of insolvency and take over the complete financial accounting and payroll accounting of the insolvent company and prepare data from the financial accounting.

Advisory services for creditors

We support insolvency creditors in enforcing their claims in insolvency proceedings and in settlement negotiations in the context of debtor reorganisations.

For banks, we are available as a contact partner for the assessment of the debtor's ability to be restructured. We also prepare and accompany insolvency plan proceedings and review them.

What clients say about TLC

SL Logistik GmbH is one of the last independent rail transport companies in Germany. As a rail logistics service provider, HSL is in direct competition with e.g. Deutsche Bahn AG/Schenker and works for automotive groups and mineral oil companies in Germany and Europe, among others.

"TLC has advised and supported us in all economic, tax and legal matters as part of our growth-oriented risk management and structuring tasks, as well as in our ongoing day-to-day business.

TLC's expert advice led to both risk minimisation of the operational business and further growth. Since TLC began working for our company in 2010, for example, HSL's turnover has more than doubled and the operating result has also increased significantly.

We would like to thank all the advisors at TLC - who supported and helped us even in difficult times - for their competent advice and personal commitment, and we hope to work with them for a very long time to come."
