Restructuring & Insolvency, Dispute Resolution, Banking & Finance

Expertise

Artur is an experienced restructuring advisor with a profound grasp of the economical circumstances and especially the soft skills and unspoken rules of the game which surround negotiations and financial restructurings in a distressed situation. His professional experience as VP-Restructuring in one of the largest Financial Institutions in Germany (KfW – IPEX), where he often represented an entire consortium of banks in restructuring negotiations, provided him with a unique insight into internal procedures of lending institutions. In his practice he acted for his clients not only as a business lawyer, but was involved in a number of complex cross-border litigations where his understanding of business proved crucial in his case analysis and presentation before the courts. At the same time his court experiences made him aware of practical risks in the execution of contracts, often overlooked or ignored.

Since the beginning of his career, his practice was cross-border oriented, working in an international team of advisors and lawyers from different countries and jurisdictions has been his day-to-day experience for over 20 years.
