Sonja Otenhajmer (31) has supported CMS in Vienna in litigation and arbitration as well as in commercial and business law as an associate since 2016. Now a registered attorney-at-law, she remains loyal to the Viennese law firm and continues to advise and represent clients in dispute-related matters, primarily in litigation and arbitration disputes.

Sonja Otenhajmer’s education also had an international background: she completed her studies at Universities in Vienna (with distinction in 2012), Bologna and Belgrade. Her interest in international arbitration developed during her studies at the University of Vienna, where she participated in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration competition. As a student already, she published in the field of dispute resolution and gained relevant professional experience in this field.

Having recently obtained a Master’s Degree in Management (Faculty of Organisational Sciences, Belgrade), Sonja Otenhajmer has another qualification that will benefit her work.
