Restructuring

Operational Restructuring

RITTERWALD advises companies facing strategic, operational or financial restructuring. As our clients, we will accompany you to the point of successful turnaround with all the right measures to get you through a profit or liquidity crisis.

Our goal is to initiate restructuring processes when the need for such action is foreseeable but your company’s business is not yet suffering. Keeping a continuous eye on the conditions and the players in the real estate market puts us in a position to react to industry developments early on. Our command of the discipline and our extensive experience are applied for your benefit as we help you implement restructuring measures in response to a corporate crisis.

We are well versed in all of the methods and processes involved in reorganizing a company and our advice is underpinned with a great deal of experience and a wealth of industry insight. Extensive financial, structural and strategy audits form the basis for viable restructuring programs. We ensure their successful delivery with proven systems to manage measures and track their realization.

Project Examples

Crisis situations are time-critical and require swift action. We’ll quickly and efficiently analyze and understand the operational structures of your company.

In many cases, crisis developments are foreseeable. Our aim is to initiate restructuring measures before the company has suffered any economic loss.

By reorganizing internal company structures and accompanying change management, significant increases in efficiency can be achieved – even in crisis situations.

Crisis management

We are effective partners in a time of crisis. We’ll get to grips with the operational structures in your company quickly and efficiently. We will rapidly home in on the key levers that can be applied to improve profits or liquidity and realize the measures we recommend.

Transactional expertise

In the context of restructuring processes, it may make sense to sell or acquire business lines. As experienced M&A consultants we support our clients with comprehensive buy-side and sell-side advisory throughout the whole process – from market testing to deal signing.

Human resources

When restructuring measures impact staffing structures, we talk openly with your employees, work out future prospects for high performers and minimize unproductive conflicts. Should downsizing be unavoidable, we’ll put together severance plans and supervise all of the necessary processes in an upstanding, professional and experienced manner.
