About

Provided by Wolf Theiss

Wolf Theiss has the largest team of corporate lawyers in CEE/SEE and, as a single and fully-integrated law firm, is ideally positioned to handle regional as well as local corporate and transactional work in all countries where it operates.

Through its offices in 13 countries, the team can rely on the support of specialized lawyers (industry and legal specialization) on the ground. Each of our offices works on transactions that rank among the most significant in its market. This ensures high quality project and transaction execution and in-depth coverage in relation to regulatory, due diligence and corporate restructuring work. There is no other law firm that has the same level of integrated in-depth coverage in all countries in CEE/SEE where it operates.

In addition, our legal experts in employment, financing, real estate, regulatory and competition/antitrust, capital markets, procurement, litigation and IP in all our offices regularly work together on cross-border assignments and can therefore deliver an aligned high quality work product.

We truly operate as a single firm and as a one-stop-shop as well as a single profit centre. This enables us to always assign the best team of lawyers in accordance with the specific needs of a client or specific project requirements.

We are often retained by major global or national law firms out of the U.S., the U.K., Europe and China that do not have offices in CEE/SEE because of our capacity to cover an entire region as a single firm.
