Diversity and Inclusion

We are a people’s business and we are just as diverse as our clients. As a result, we live a diverse corporate culture with equal opportunities for all. What’s more, we strive for inclusion in all aspects of diversity.

Our people, regardless of gender, age, ethnic background or nationality, religion or belief, sexual orientation or disability, are the foundation of our success. Diversity is our innovation driver and our greatest asset, keeping us fit for the future.

Our continuous support of women in the legal profession has earned us the “European Women in Business Law Award” multiple times in several countries.

Our combined efforts have also been recognised by Top Ranked Legal’s 2022 Diversity & Inclusion Law Firm of the Year Award for Europe.

Our awarded projects include our “Step Up Equal Opportunities” initiative, by way of which we help to promote career development and work-life balance. As part of this initiative, we were the only Austrian law firm participating in the “WoMentoring” project.

In Poland we have supported female entrepreneurship through partnership with the Women’s Entrepreneurship Foundation (Fundacja Przedsiębiorczości Kobiet) and Black Swan Fund. Our activities have included conferences on investments in start-up companies and establishing new businesses, as well networking events in our Warsaw office for women investors.

Over the years, several of our lawyers have been included in the Europe, Middle East and Africa IFLR1000 Women Leaders. Their success is a reflection on their excellence and contributes to female empowerment within the legal profession.
