The restructuring market is on the move. Inflation, interest rates and rising wage and material costs lead us to expect an increase in insolvencies. Therefore, the permanent monitoring of the financial status is becoming increasingly important for the management, but also for their advisors. The new Restructuring Update deals with the associated consequences and challenges.

The necessary knowledge and experience often have to be gathered again. We take a look at which aspects need to be considered.
