Overview

Brandl & Talos is known for its unparalleled expertise in the entertainment and leisure sector. This is no idle claim. Our experience with large-scale, complex transactions in the gaming sector is truly unique in Austria and quite remarkable in Europe. The firm's partner, Thomas Talos, is a recognized specialist whose experience affords him a keen insight into the gaming sector. This is proven through the long-standing mandates of bwin.party and now also GVC Holdings, Century Casinos, Sportradar AG and, recently, by a mandate regarding the proposed acquisition of one of Germany's leading retail and online sports betting operators.

Furthermore, we have a strong focus in the industry of coatings and stationery products. As long-standing legal counsel of "Ring" International Holding, we have advised on almost all of their major transactions. Partner Roman Rericha coordinated and managed the acquisition of the Slovenian based Helios Domžale, the subsequent equity investment of two top-class international private equity firms, and the reorganisation of the group. Roman also regularly advises "Ring" International Holding on a number of corporate issues. Brandl & Talos therefore has an unequalled understanding of the industry.

We are also becoming increasingly involved in transactions in the biotechnology, real estate and financial services sectors.
