Wolf Theiss

AUSTRIA

Vienna is where it all began some 60 years ago. Today, with over 140 lawyers, many of whom are multilingual and have practiced abroad, our Vienna office is by itself the largest law firm in Austria.

Vienna has always been a hub for CEE/SEE. These days, international and even global companies are the ties that bind Austria to the rest of the region. With its regional footprint, it makes sense that so many go through Austria before heading east.

With all this history, it shouldn't be surprising that we've built up a database of contacts in Austria and throughout CEE/SEE. Knowing the real movers and shakers from the Balkans to the Baltic means real benefits for you and your business. Our contacts are your assets, helping us help you to anticipate opportunities, manage risk and achieve your business goals.

Whatever your line of work, from financial services to real estate, infrastructure or energy and life sciences, we at Wolf Theiss Vienna combine our legal expertise with industry knowledge here and in CEE/SEE.
