Vienna

Austria

CMS Austria, founded in Vienna in 1970, looks back on 45 successful years. As our client, you benefit from our regional market expertise and industry knowledge regardless of whether you are looking to expand to CEE/SEE, Western Europe or even beyond, not only because we are among the largest law firms in Austria, but also because of our special hub position in Vienna and our collaboration with our locally rooted and internationally active CMS colleagues.

In Vienna, 75 lawyers are at your service to face the future together with you. Globalisation and ever-changing economic conditions continuously pose complex legal challenges to companies. Especially the jungle of regulations companies involved in cross-border business have to heed is rife with legal pitfalls. These are the exact legal challenges in which we specialise. Do not hesitate to contact us via our online contact form or by phone.

We see it as our job to guide you through diverse jurisdictions in a safe and business-oriented way. That’s why it almost goes without saying that we are always up to date regarding legislative changes in both the Austrian and international markets.

In our work, we focus on M&A, banking & finance, real estate, building law, labour law, tax law, energy law, IP and IT law, competition law and procurement law. What’s more, we also take care of the entire legal management of your projects, for instance in transactions.
