Christoph Plähn

Lawyer / Strategic consultant / Restructuring expert

Formation, company start-up or development, transactions, crisis or succession planning: regardless of the stage your company is at, I will be your strategic partner.

Our collaboration is based on my considerable expertise and many years of professional experience. I may also bring together expert teams to find the optimal solution for challenges you are facing.

I do not think in legal terms only, but from the perspective of your company. That is why I always consider your company in its entirety when I am working with you.


Collaboration with my clients is characterised by personal contact and up-to-date, digital tools as well as, of course, reliability, flexibility and transparency.

Expertise / Practice areas / Services

I am a lawyer specialised in tax, commercial and company law. From the formation of your company, choosing the right legal form and drafting the relevant contracts for your company, to passing it on to the next generation or selling it: I will help you to achieve your business goals.

This includes collaborating with specialised lawyers or tax advisors whenever this is necessary for comprehensive and targeted advice and representation.

I am by your side in times of crisis, too. As a certified Restructuring Consultant (certified by the IfUS Institute Heidelberg, Germany), I will support you in negotiations with your creditors as well as with the restructuring of your company within or outside insolvency proceedings, taking into account all relevant options such as preventive restructuring pursuant to the German Act on the Framework for the Stabilisation and Restructuring of Companies (Gesetz über den Stabilisierungs- und Restrukturierungsrahmen für Unternehmen / StaRUG), debtor-in-possession management or an insolvency plan.
