What the team is known for

A recognised international practice with excellent global coverage, Baker McKenzie has developed a solid, full-service team in Austria. Across both advisory and contentious areas, the team is involved in international work, with Vienna-based practitioners particularly active on matters relating to Germany and Central and Eastern Europe. The firm's capabilities from Austria are enhanced by its vast network globally, and practitioners in Vienna can call on the resources of Baker McKenzie teams overseas.

The team's transactional strength extends to a number of different areas internationally. Mid-market clients from the financial services, private equity, life sciences and real estate sectors regularly engage the firm for its cross-border expertise. The corporate team has a strong track record of advising on German transactions and often works in conjunction with Baker McKenzie colleagues based in Germany.

On contentious mandates, the firm's Austrian base acts as a hub for disputes relating to Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. Investment treaty arbitration continues to be an area of success for the team, with members acting for both private investors and nation states. Equally, the firm's cross-border IP practice is held in high regard, offering clients the support of its unrivalled global reach.

Strengths

Clients highlight the firm's office network and global reach. One says: "The cooperation can definitely be described as international. The law firm maintains offices worldwide and also coordinates our other correspondent firms in a very professional manner and always on time."

Another comments: "The firm has partners all around the world, so this never causes any issue and our questions concerning different jurisdictions are always handled promptly."
