Our CMS teams in Austria and Slovenia have been included in a list of the best competition law experts, as published by Global Competition Review (GCR). GCR provides one of the most important global ranking lists for competition law worldwide. Also included were our CMS colleagues from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain and Switzerland.
At CMS REICH-ROHRWIG HAINZ, practice head Bernt Elsner takes on a mixture of competition and public procurement work. He is supported by counsel Dieter Zandler and three associates. The firm was lead counsel in Axpo International’s acquisition of Wolkswing, which saw the Vienna team work alongside colleagues in Stuttgart to assist with merger filings. Swedish pharmaceutical company Meda AB turned to Zandler, alongside colleagues in Hamburg, Spain, Russia and Lisbon, for guidance as it bought out Italian company Rottapharm. Zandler also represented Swissport in Austrian merger filings as it acquired control over plane fuelling services provider Aviation Fuel Services, and as the company established a joint venture with Lufthansa to become the fuelling company’s co-shareholder.
