"We would like to thank Rödl & Partner for the constructive cooperation and the successful M&A process, complicated by the negotiations over the turn of the year. The transaction achieved represents a great gain for both sides and enables in particular the employees of RRI to benefit from the structures of the international Ingérop. Above all, we would like to thank the employees of RRI who supported the insolvency process throughout and made it possible," says Nils Meißner.
