Barbara Brenner CEO/Lawyer, KSI-International, Bonn, Germany
Barbara Brenner founded KSI-International in 2007. She is the chief executive officer and heads the German office.
Barbara studied law at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms University in Bonn with a focus on international civil law and conflicts of law. From 1992 to 1994, she worked as a graduate assistant to chair of Professor Dr. H.C. Marcus Lutter. During this time, she contributed to different publications, including the periodical European Commercial Law Review (ECLR), a supplement to the ZGR. Additionally, she was responsible for translating and editing the third edition of the ZGR special issue on the law of subsidiaries abroad.
During her practicing years, she was appointed as receiver in ongoing proceedings. After her admission to the bar in 1994, she was engaged to advise creditors of the trade and industry sector in insolvency proceedings. She specialized in collaterals, insolvency and international civil law, focusing on out-of-court corporate restructuring negotiations (pre-packaged plans). She advises predominantly large and medium-sized businesses and is proud to say “Whoever asks for advice, he or she will get the boss.”
Barbara is regularly invited to speak and publish on these topics in Germany and abroad. She is fluent in English and French and speaks a conversational Italian.
Her motivation in founding KSI-International was realizing that even large creditors have no impact in German insolvency proceedings and that it is too time-consuming for each creditor to observe his or her individual rights properly. She found that it is crucial that creditors get organized and accumulate their voting rights to avoid being pushed aside by the IP and the court.
She organized KSI-International as a non-profit organization and created a network of insolvency specialists based worldwide and particularly in Europe.
