At PLUTA, Mr Stefan Meyer, who founded and built up the law firm of the same name, will continue to be responsible for the regions that he previously operated in together with his team and will in addition be managing director and partner of PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH.

Following his formal training course in banking, he completed his studies of law and economics in Bayreuth.
“We look forward to working together in future and completing the tasks ahead. PLUTA’s broad market position consisting of the three core areas restructuring, insolvency administration and legal advice offers the best prerequisites for success in the coming years even against the backdrop of a greatly changing market situation. In addition to Germany-wide positioning, PLUTA’s international orientation is extremely interesting and provides good potential for future growth. We are now very well positioned to complete the imminent tasks in the coming years,” explained Stefan Meyer.
