PLUTA’s services are bundled in three businesses:

Legal Consulting

Our core area of expertise includes drafting legally sound contracts with reference to company law, labour law, tax law, insolvency law, and bank and capital market law. Furthermore, we provide protection against third-party claims by means of representation, both in court and out of court, or in a court of arbitration. We also specialise in legal consulting in German–Spanish and German–Italian proceedings. In this way, we ensure the economic success of a company.


In addition to consultation on issues involving labour or company law during restructuring measures and the creation of integrated corporate plans, distressed due diligence reviews and restructuring concepts in accordance with the IDW S6 standard, we also provide support during M&A processes. Moreover, we also ensure comprehensive controlling and provide experienced interim managers in order to guarantee success. In other words, we help companies to overcome crises.

Insolvency Administration

Value preservation by means of continuing business operations, increasing insolvency estate by means of comprehensive analysis and assertion of claims pursuant to insolvency law – these are our principles. Regardless of the sector, the main product focus or the size of the company, we implement insolvency plans expertly and methodically. This is how we lead companies safely through the crisis.
