Certification in a protective shield process
In the event of imminent illiquidity or over-indebtedness a company may apply for protective shield proceedings pursuant to § 270b InsO, during which the company is managed by its regular management under the supervision of a so-called trustee with a view to draw up an insolvency plan for the restructuring of the company. Protective shield proceedings may not last for more than three months. Together with the application, the company needs to provide a certification by an insolvency expert outlining that the company is over-indebted or imminently illiquid but not already illiquid and that the envisaged restructuring does not manifestly lack the prospect of success.
We avail of a multidisciplinary team of auditors, tax advisors and attorneys-at-law experienced in insolvency matters who have already drawn up numerous such certifications leading to the initiation of the protective screen process.
