Gregor Famira is a corporate and M&A lawyer and a leading expert in the hotel and leisure industry. He is a partner of CMS in Vienna and founder and head of the CMS offices in Zagreb (2003) and Ljubljana (2008). Since 2005, Gregor Famira has been advising Austrian start-up companies from the IT sector in the fields of telephony, gaming, social networking and computer vision.

Frequent topics are the financing of new companies, company law and data protection as well as the appropriate contractual documentation for the business model at hand – understanding each individual company, its goals and the way to achieve them are the basis for new approaches and effective advice – this often requires thinking “outside the box”.

Gregor Famira’s second area of expertise is the coordination and professional support of transactions in CEE.
