Advising on finance-driven transactions is at the heart of what we do – our partners have more than 25 years and hundreds of transactions of experience.
Operating from a small but highly international home market like Austria brings clear benefits when it comes to gaining access to many markets, product types and roles in finance-driven transactions. As such, we regularly work for lenders, arrangers, corporate clients and financial sponsors in a broad range of scenarios.
Transactions we work on usually – but not necessarily – have a connection to our home market. We are used to efficiently managing transactions around the globe. In scenarios requiring legal advice in other jurisdictions, we resort to our vast network of local counsel, which are all leaders in their fields or work together with preferred counsel of our clients.
Our unique position regularly brings us a global footprint spawning several continents year and year again.
This gives us one-of-a-kind breadth and depth in finance-driven transactions our clients wish to engage in.
