“Insolvency administration is about finding the most equitable solutions possible”

Joachim Büttner completed his studies — first in philosophy, then in law — in Hamburg. While still a student, he worked for an accounting firm and a law firm specializing in insolvency law. After starting his legal clerkship, he continued his activities in the law firm.

He was a partner at HENNINGSMEIER Attorneys-at-Law from 1992–2017. In 2018, Joachim Büttner, together with Jutta Rüdlin, Ulrich Rosenkranz, and Stefan Schlegel, founded BRRS Attorneys-at-Law. Since the firm’s founding, he has managed the Hamburg office together with Ulrich Rosenkranz.

He is one of the contributors to the Hamburg Commentary on Insolvency Law (Section 63–65 Insolvency Code (InsO), Sections 1–3, 9–20 Insolvency Law Fee Regulation (InsVV)). In addition to fee regulation law, he has also been in charge of the annex to Section 5 InsO of the commentary, which deals with the insolvency administrator’s right to information vis-à-vis the public financial administration (GDPR, IFG [Information Freedom Act], etc.) since the eighth edition.

Joachim Büttner lives with his family in Hamburg; he enjoys reading and traveling.

Joachim Büttner was awarded the Handelsblatt quality seal “Germany’s Best Lawyers” in 2020.
