Eisenberger & Herzog (E&H), together with the London team of law firm Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy, has advised a group of creditors of the seller of the comprehensive Kika / Leiner property assets in Austria and several CEE countries. The signing took place on 21 June 2018.

“The deal’s greatest challenge was the impending bankruptcy of the operational Kika / Leiner companies and with that, the loss of more than 5,000 jobs if the negotiations had failed. Our task was to safeguard the legitimate interests of the creditors, despite the enormous time pressure”, says Team Michael Strenitz.
