Norton Rose Fulbright has appointed Dr. Sylwia Maria Bea as its new EMEA co-head of financial restructuring and insolvency.
A restructuring and insolvency partner based in the firm’s Frankfurt office, Sylwia will join the current EMEA co-head, London-based James Stonebridge, in overseeing the firm’s practice in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, working closely with the other regions across the global firm.
Sylwia has significant experience advising the management, shareholders, insolvency administrators, investors and creditors of distressed companies on insolvency proceedings, as well as on in and out-of-court restructuring measures, including the distressed sale of Dradura Group to FMC and a number of StaRUG-proceedings.
Sylwia is also the co-founder and member of the management board of ‘Distressed Ladies – Women in Restructuring e.V.’, an established network of women in the insolvency and restructuring market, which supports members with their professional development, and seeks to promote young talent.
“I am thrilled to have been given this opportunity to co-lead Norton Rose Fulbright’s EMEA financial restructuring and insolvency practice. It has been a busy period for our practice across the region and, in these uncertain times, we are anticipating things to be even busier. I look forward to working with the team to further support our clients in the coming months and years,” Sylwia said.
