“Together, we can turn a financial crisis into a genuine entrepreneurial opportunity”

Attorney Markus Ritterrath combined legal and business thinking at an early stage through his choice of majors in his studies as well as positions at a large law firm in the M&A sector, a globally active insurance company, and at one of the largest law firms in Cape Town. Since his admission to the bar in 2012, Markus Ritterrath has been part of the team that is today the firm BRRS Attorneys-at-Law. Markus Ritterrath has been a partner at BRRS Rechtsanwälte since January 1, 2023 and heads the Bonn office. Since 2022 he has been appointed as insolvency administrator and expert by the district courts of Mainz, Wiesbaden, Bonn, Cologne, Limburg and Neuwied.

BRRS attorney Ritterrath focuses on insolvency administration, continuation of business operations, and reorganization. In his view, his important task is cooperating with all involved parties to come up with appropriate and future-oriented solutions in a difficult situation. Open communication in the sensitive area of insolvency administration and insolvency counseling is the key to the development of his own ideas as well as of possible solutions, which attorney Ritterrath can also guide and support during proceedings.

Highly motivated, persistent, and enthusiastic, Markus Ritterrath takes the approach of turning a financial crisis into a genuine opportunity for successful restructuring and a new entrepreneurial start.

In his personal life, Markus Ritterrath enjoys spending time with his family and friends. After playing soccer for many years, the native Rhinelander now does volunteer work for his home sports club.
