List of 3 large insolvency administrators in Germany

Our list of the largest insolvency administrators in Germany contains more than 100 law firms. In the following, we present three particularly relevant players.

1. JAFFÉ Rechtsanwälte (Munich)

The commercial law firm JAFFÉ Rechtsanwälte PartG mbB headed by Michael Jaffé is one of the most renowned law firms in the field of insolvency administration. In addition to the high-profile insolvency case of Wirecard AG from Aschheim near Munich, Michael Jaffé was also involved in the insolvency proceedings of KirchMedia GmbH & Co. KG aA and Qimonda AG as insolvency administrator. The firm specializes entirely in national and international insolvency law and has offices in Munich, Cologne and Frankfurt.

Update 2023: The renowned firm literally continues to play at the top when it comes to liquidations of insolvent organizations. Most recently, JAFFÉ handled the insolvency of former third-division club Türkgücü Munich, whose losses in the millions were significantly higher than originally anticipated. The club started the 2022/2023 season in the fourth-tier Bavarian Regional League.

2. SGP Schneider Geiwitz & Partner (Neu-Ulm)

With 22 offices and around 320 employees, the commercial law firm SGP Schneider Geiwitz is one of the most relevant players in Germany. The company operates in the segments of auditing, tax and legal advice, corporate finance, real estate management, restructuring and insolvency administration and is thus able to provide its clients with comprehensive services. Arndt Geiwitz has already been appointed as insolvency administrator in a number of well-known insolvency proceedings (including Weltbild and Quelle) and regularly ranks among the most important insolvency administrators in Germany in terms of company turnover.

Update 2024: The most prominent advisory case at the moment is probably the Signa Group of Austrian billionaire Benko, which has run into difficulties. The group is being advised by Ulm-based insolvency administrator Geiwitz.

3. Brinkmann & Partner (Hamburg)

Brinkmann & Partner is one of the leading restructuring and insolvency administrator firms in Germany. It covers the whole of Germany from 29 offices, with the largest location and headquarters remaining in Hamburg.

Tasks of bankruptcy trustees in the German economy

After a company has opened insolvency proceedings, the insolvency administrator, appointed by the insolvency court, takes over. This person takes over the administration of the insolvency estate. In detail, this means that the insolvency estate is first analyzed and determined, a list of creditors is drawn up and a decision is made on the future of the ailing company. This makes insolvency administrators an important figure in the German economy, both on the creditor side and on the company side.
