BERLIN – June 1, 2016 – The insolvency administrator Jesko Stark from Berlin is joining the restructuring entity of Greenberg Traurig, GT Restructuring, as of June 1, 2016. The 36-year-old attorney leaves an insolvency administration law firm in Berlin to become the third partner besides Christian Köhler-Ma and Dr. Gordon Geiser in the team of 17 people.
Stark has been working as an attorney since 2008 and as an insolvency administrator since 2012. He is appointed as an insolvency administrator and trustee by the Local Courts (Amtsgerichte) of Charlottenburg and Potsdam on a regular basis. In January 2016, he drew attention to himself as insolvency administrator when he managed to sell the logistics company My Lorry GmbH in Berlin to the Takeaway Group, preserving all eight German branches.
“With Jesko Stark, another recognized insolvency administrator and restructuring expert is coming on board, enabling us to further promote our growth in Germany,” said Dr. Christian Schede, managing partner of Greenberg Traurig Germany.
Already in October 2015, the team was expanded under the management of the well-known insolvency administrator Christian Köhler-Ma. Since joining the U.S. law firm Greenberg Traurig, GT Restructuring has also been supported by financing and restructuring expert Dr. Gordon Geiser.
“Despite the good economic situation, traditional insolvency administration continues to be an important mainstay besides restructuring advice and the assumption of the position of Chief Restructuring Officer under debtor-in-possession management,” Köhler-Ma explains. “With Jesko Stark, we can further maintain the balance between traditional administration and national and international advisory services.”
GT Restructuring is the entity of the German office of Greenberg Traurig that specializes in advice on restructuring and reorganization processes and insolvency administration. In addition to conventional insolvency administration, the partners assist their clients as restructuring managers within the framework of restructuring processes by means of an insolvency plan under debtor-in-possession management on a regular basis.
