Every transformation or transaction requires a customer-specific approach. Throughout the entire process, we focus on the interests of all the stakeholders and implement measures with a high degree of intuition and expertise.


In the event of unrealized expectations of profit or existing liquidity shortfalls, goetzpartners quickly and pragmatically identifies the necessary restructuring measures and suggests concrete courses of action. Furthermore, by taking a holistic approach to the strategic, operative and financial situation, we can address both stakeholder management and the operative implementation of measures in a hands-on manner.

Our holistic restructuring concepts are valued by our customers for their high degree of practical applicability. They are designed according to goetzpartners’ proven, award-winning Buch-Logik® (“Book Logic”), which comprises the design, control and sustainable implementation of large, complex restructuring projects.

Whether systematic cost reductions, sustainable transformation or a rapid turnaround is needed, we support our customers as independent advisors through every step of the process by providing financial stabilization, performance-oriented restructuring, strategic positioning and systematic employee mobilization.

For more than 25 years, goetzpartners has been advising and supporting small and mid-size businesses, international corporations and institutional investors as they face challenges posed by critical situations and other exceptional circumstances.

In challenging restructuring, fiduciary and insolvency cases, our combined expertise in corporate finance and corporate restructuring delivers sustainable value. Further information  Distressed M&A.

In negotiating with the works’ council and/or trade unions, we are recognized by both parties, and we aim to handle redundancies in a manner that is as socially compatible and also as discreet as possible.
