Distressed M&A consulting (financial)



The distressed M&A team at Rödl & Partner is specialised in providing consulting services for the disposal or acquisition of companies which are involved in a complex earnings or liquidity crisis or have already filed for bankruptcy. 
The team has extensive experience in providing consulting services with distressed M&A projects in many industrial sectors. Through our operative restructuring experience we also understand the special points and challenges of a company crisis or insolvency and bring this expertise into the transaction process. 


Our clients include insolvency administrators, companies and financial investors for transactions on the German domestic market and cross-border transactions in international markets. Furthermore, Rödl & Partner provides distressed M&A consulting services for the spin-off of underperforming business units which are not a part of the core business.
A special core area of competence is consulting for insolvency administrators with company disposals arising from bankruptcy. Through a deep understanding of the special points of the insolvency proceedings, professional support for the disposal process is ensured at all times.

Scope of services

A special situation requires an individual consulting service. We do not apply a standardised solution approach, but instead in active consultation with our clients develop the appropriate process strategy and transaction structure for the situation under consideration of various interests of all concerned parties and then implement the tailor-made strategy.

Company disposals 

For company disposals we take on responsibility for the complete project management of the complex M&A process in special situations. In close consultation with our clients we establish all of the important transaction steps, including elaboration of the selling strategy, definition of the transaction object, development of a bidding competition, documentation and implementation. We always ensure a tight process management under consideration of the required flexibility in critical moments.
Our clients benefit from a greater degree of transaction security and maximisation of value through the generation of momentum, transparency and competitive pressure among the interested parties. Our 110 Rödl & Partner offices worldwide ensure access to a global purchasing universe.

Company acquisitions

For company acquisitions we ensure holistic and goal-oriented project management including strategy consulting and transaction structuring consulting up to the conclusion of the acquisition. In this process we focus on the special points and analysis of the company crisis and insolvency.

Interdisciplinary services

Depending on the requirements, for the purpose of establishing the appropriate legal and tax structuring of the transaction, in the course of due diligence or with special valuation questions, further inhouse experts from Rödl & Partner are included.​
