It has an outstanding record in advising both lenders and distressed borrowers on pre-insolvency reorganisation and re-financing, as well as extensive experience in representing creditors in insolvency proceedings and insolvency related litigation.

In addition, the insolvency and restructuring team frequently acts as legal advisor in cross-border insolvency proceedings and is permanent counsel of international banking associations in connection with close-out netting issues.

Schoenherr’s insolvency and restructuring team is well regarded for its ability to efficiently handle complex, large-scale restructurings and providing comprehensive advice, drawing, where necessary, upon experts from other practice groups, such as banking & finance and corporate m&a.

Tobias Eisenmann

Tobias Eisenmann is specialized in advice to and judicial representation of national and international companies in the construction and real estate sector, of medium sized building companies, property developers, architects and engineers. His field of activity includes advising in large-scape projects and individual construction projects, in procedures of acquisition and divestment and commercial leases. A further emphasis is on drafting property purchase agreements, construction agreements as well as architectural and engineering contracts.

Tobias Eisenmann studied law at the University of Tübingen (Dr. jur.) and the University of Oxford (England). He is member and chairman of advisory and supervisory boards of several real estate companies and member of the working groups for Construction and Real Estate Law (ARGE Baurecht) and the working group Tenancy Law of the German Lawyers’ Association. He speaks German and English.

The Construction Law Practice:

Haver & Mailänder has decades of experience in advising and representing its clients in the field of major construction projects and industrial plant and in the associated disputes at state courts and arbitration tribunals.

This includes the attorneys’ support of enterprises in consortium and joint venture projects abroad also, if necessary, in conjunction with qualified law firms which also belong to Haver & Mailänder’s Law Firm Network. Our practice includes providing support to architects and engineers on national and international projects. Both real estate and commercial rental and lease law similarly form important components of our range of services.

Haver & Mailänder Rechtsanwälte:

Haver & Mailänder was formed in 1965 from the cooperation between Dr. Friedrich Haver († 1976) and Dr. K. Peter Mailänder. Today, we are a law firm of over 30 lawyers and one of the few medium-sized firms in Germany with national and international renown.

ECONOMICS COMPETENCE

We advise and represent both German and international companies and entrepreneurs in all fields of national and international economic law. Our practice focuses on commercial and corporate law, mergers & acquisitions, antitrust and competition law, banking law and the law of the capital markets, corporate tax law, media and broadcasting law, telecommunications law and on all the ramifications of the law of intellectual property. Our areas of core competence also include dispute resolution in judicial and arbitral proceedings. The extensive theoretical and practical knowledge acquired by HAVER & MAILÄNDER over the course of several decades is being continually passed on to the generation of our younger, well-trained and ambitious lawyers.

CLIENT CARE

As a medium-sized group of highly-qualified lawyers with economic expertise and other certified specialisations, we pursue a different concept from that of giant law firms. We consider ourselves to be a closely-meshed network of lawyers, organised as partners in a ‘law boutique’ with an absolute focus on our clients and their interests. Our advice is highly personal and individual, target-oriented and success-related. Our clients are each under the responsibility of one partner who is personally available as the constant point of contact. We always take an overall and concentrated view of problems.

TEAMWORK

Whenever necessary we form work groups comprising our respective specialists. At our regular meetings we discuss difficult or complex cases in a large group so as to fully exploit our firm’s overall expertise also in interdisciplinary areas of law. This concentrated work process has proved both effective and successful – moreover it is even economical for our clients.

COMPETENCE IN EUROPEAN LAW

As a consequence of Europeanisation and globalisation, business law has long since crossed national frontiers. The European law created by the European treaties and institutions in Brussels is applied both directly and indirectly to wide aspects of our economic life. HAVER & MAILÄNDER was early to identify this trend. Almost all of our lawyers already acquired knowledge and practical experience of European law during their legal education and are fluent in negotiations in English or French. We have had our own office in Brussels for almost 30 years now in order to account for the very special work style of the European institutions, develop the necessary contacts and encounter their highly-specialised civil servants on equal terms. With its specialists in European law, our Brussels office has established an excellent reputation above all in the law of state aid and in telecommunications law.

Fort Advocaten:

But we also handle many cases for our clients further afield, both in the Netherlands and abroad – with efficiency, élan and expertise.

Our clients’ interest are always our main concern. One of the partners will serve as your dedicated contact. We will jointly search for efficient approaches to your case, always making that extra effort.
