We develop comprehensive, practice-oriented solutions for our clients in all fields of individual and collective labor law, helping them achieve long-term business success with the best employees while minimizing personnel risks.
In light of the global transformation of the banking and capital markets industry, there is a great need for innovative, creative and efficient models for capitalizing and structuring financial institutions. Our team of dedicated lawyers develops customized solutions to the issues our clients face in order to help them meet the demands of our changing times.
More than ever before, corporations are now requested to organize their business so as to ensure that commercial activities are consistent with applicable laws and society’s moral values. Offences may result in penalty payments, loss of reputation and criminal charges. We help companies create effective corporate compliance structures that contribute to lasting business success.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which became effective on May 25 2018 provides for a fundamentally new legal framework.
Considering the new investigative power of the Data Protection Authority and the much more severe penalties for infringements, it is vitally important for companies to be compliant with data protection regulation.
We support clients in preparing for the existing legal framework. Due to our cooperation with IT-experts, we are in the rare position to consider legal and technical aspects as we work interdisciplinary.
We advise large stock corporations and midmarket companies as well as family-operated businesses on matters of corporate and commercial law in everyday business as well as during the preparation and execution of complex reorganizations and restructurings.
We advise private and institutional investors as well as real estate project developers on all questions of real estate law. We analyze the legal risks of a real estate transaction, draw up purchase contracts and assist our clients during purchase contract negotiations.
Securing, utilizing and enforcing intellectual property is of vital importance for almost every business. We assist our clients in the protection and utilization of their intellectual property rights. We also advise on legal issues concerning advertising and branding, as well as on internet liability issues and during the execution of complex IT outsourcing projects.
We advise national and international groups, small and medium-sized companies, managers, financial investors and providers of venture capital on company acquisitions and sales as well as on joint ventures. In cross-border transactions, we offer one-stop legal advice with the support of our cooperation partners.
The public economic law and the environmental law consists of a virtually unmanageable number of national and international legal provisions and even the smallest mistake can lead to considerable difficulties in implementing a project, or in subsequently, to long lasting legal disputes. Therefore, we advise and support our clients from the project development phase through the approvals process and all the way to implementation as well as before the competent authorities and courts.
We represent our clients in dealings with the Austrian and European antitrust agencies and help them to comply with the European Commission’s vast number of laws, regulations, guidelines and other publications.
