AUSTRIA

Our Vienna office is where it all began over 50 years ago. We have since built a reputation as one of the most respected names in Austrian law, winning numerous awards along the way – most recently being named as Austrian Law Firm of the Year 2013 by Chambers & Partners.

The team now includes over 130 lawyers, most of whom are multilingual and have practiced abroad – so there is a real multi-national character to the practice. This is important, because it gives us a real understanding of the legal systems and business climates in many jurisdictions, not just our own.
