Christian Wolf advises national and international companies in the areas of insolvency law and restructuring. He specialises in offering restructuring advice, reorganisation management and transaction advice to distressed businesses (distressed M&A).
Christian Wolf has been working with distressed companies since the start of his legal career. After several years in insolvency administration at GÖRG, he now advises companies who are in the process of restructuring, on the one hand, and also creditors who are confronted with a distressed contractual partner. Christian Wolf also assists in restructuring-related transactions on both the seller and investor side.
One further area of focus for Christian Wolf is the assumption of executive functions in restructuring, where his objective is always to avoid insolvency and maximise value for the stakeholders. The focus here lies in complex real estate structures, in which a variety of social and fiscal challenges often need to be overcome in addition to operational stabilisation of the assets.
In addition to his mandate work, Christian Wolf has been involved in the firm's Executive Committee since 2019.
Dr Christian Wolf started his legal career at GÖRG. He was appointed partner at the start of 2010, and is part of the practice group for insolvency law and restructuring.
