Andreas Lichten­ber­ger’s promotion adds another lawyer to the CMS team
Press release - 19. April 2024Andreas Lichtenberger (30), who specialises in data protection law, was promoted to lawyer at CMS Vienna in February 2024. In addition, he has been appointed as the firm’s new data protection officer, filling a further important position at CMS Vienna. Andreas Lichtenberger completed his business law degree in Vienna and has worked at CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz for several years. After joining the firm in 2016 as a legal trainee and staying on as an associate in 2019, he now works as a lawyer and continues to strengthen the data protection law team, a market-leading expert team. His legal practice also focuses on the areas of IT/IP law and commercial law. “His portfolio is a great fit for us, since we advise numerous clients on issues such as international data exchange, cloud solutions, artificial intelligence, and further challenges of our interconnected world,” says CMS managing partner Johannes Juranek. “As businesses increasingly rely on our expertise in data protection law in the context of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are continuously growing our team.” With the new Cybersecurity Act due to enter into force in autumn, Andreas Lichten­ber­ger’s expertise will continue to be very much sought after. The Act imposes a duty of care on numerous business, authorities, and associations. They must enhance IT security measures and expand risk management in order to meet the upcoming stricter, EU-wide requirements. CMS data protection officer Andreas Lichtenberger will also apply his expertise and experience as the firm’s data protection officer (DPO). In an international law firm, GDPR compliance requires a substantial time commitment, especially considering the need for in-depth collaboration and coordination with management, the IT department, and the entire global CMS network.

M&A expert Christoph Birner rises to rank of lawyer at CMS Reich-Rohrwig...
Press release - 17 April 2024After completing a master’s degree at Stanford Law School, Christoph Birner (29) rose to the rank of lawyer in April as a member of the CMS transactions team in the Corporate and Banking & Finance areas. An expert in M&A and financing transactions, he was admitted to the Bar not only in Vienna, but also in New York in 2024. Christoph Birner has worked on the CMS transactions team for several years, advising numerous international clients on corporate and financing transactions. Recently, for instance, he was part of the team that advised the Greek Sfakianakis Group on the acquisition of Ajar Car Rental GmbH (the master franchisee of Enterprise, National, and Alamo), supporting its market entry into Aus­tria. "Chris­toph Birner is another young talent from among our own ranks who has been admitted to the Bar. We are very pleased about this, not least because he is at home in all areas of business law and corporate law. This is all the more important in the context of a stable M&A market and our firm’s involvement in a record number of transactions, as shown in the recently published M&A study, as he will be able to contribute his specific M&A expertise to an even greater extent,” says Günther Hanslik, managing partner and head of the financial transactions team at CMS Vienna. From the start, Christoph Birner’s goal has been to combine legal and business expertise. Accordingly, he completed a law degree as well as a degree in business administration in Vienna. He then went on to expand his know-how by pursuing another law degree at the renowned Stanford University. He also gained additional experience abroad – always an asset for an internationally active law firm like CMS – during academic stays at Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi, the University of St. Gallen, the University of Oxford, and Harvard Law School."The international and in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary environment at CMS is perfect for me to succeed in my chosen specialist areas and to devise the best possible solutions for our clients,” says Christoph Birner.
