Women in Restructuring

The Distressed Ladies are experts in the fields of law and business consulting, insolvency administration, banking, interim management, corporate finance and investment advice. Our membership also includes other service providers from various disciplines involved in corporate restructuring, reorganisation and insolvency.

Membership of our association provides a forum for individual and group development in our chosen field. It also allows for mutual support for our members in this line of business. The Distressed Ladies promote young talents.

Connect with Specialists

The Distressed Ladies act as spokeswomen and panelists at well known events in the area of corporate restructuring, reorganisation and insolvency.

These regular events act as a networking platform for the exchange of professional views and help to create and maintain a valuable contact base within and extending beyond the membership. This extension often takes the form of invitations to selective guests and other professionals.

The Network was founded in 2013 by Sylwia Maria Bea, Katharina Gerdes and Anne Schwall. The foundation of the association followed in March 2016


Notwithstanding our regular contributions as an organization, we actively involve ourselves in identifying opportunities for promoting outside involvement at specialist’ events and via press comment. Our combined expertise and wealth of experience are particularly visible in these situations.
