Wolf Theiss is "certainly one of the finest law firms in Austria," reports a source, adding: "They are one of the premier powerhouse law firms of the region. They are a very, very important hub when it comes to private client work." Wolf Theiss has a dedicated private client team that delivers a range of services for high net worth individuals and families internationally, including asset structuring and estate planning.

Several interviewees describe the firm as their "go-to in Austria." One explains: "They did a perfect job. I wholly recommend the services of Wolf Theiss." Another interviewee remarks: "They are easy to work with and are straightforward in their approach."

Notable practitioners

"Unmistakably, you always think of Niklas Schmidt " for private wealth matters in Austria, a source enthuses. One interviewee praises Schmidt's strength in cross-border tax planning in particular, as well as his "broad understanding of other private client-related legal matters." Another says: "Niklas is fun to work with because he is electric – he has an electric energy. He is an amazing chap to speak with and to work with." This source adds: "I know that he is not only a very good tax lawyer, but now he is also a leading lawyer for Bitcoin and cryptocurrency law. He's super diverse. What I like about him is that he is not clinging to the area of law that you would expect him to practise in; he's extremely elaborate and diverse in both crypto law and English law. He's a superb networker and a good partner for any good legal project."
