Areas of Specialisation

Today, a lawyer's competent advice is more important than ever. The laws and regulations that must be observed are too comprehensive and manifold and amendments are made too quickly for private individuals or entrepreneurs to be able to see through the jungle of regulations without skilled assistance.

Nonetheless, even today legal transactions are often concluded on the basis of amateurish tips. Unfortunately, the resulting problems are realised only later, often too late.

So the motto should be: consult a lawyer in time to avoid problems later.

Competence and Secrecy

Your lawyer not only knows what legal steps should be taken and what time limits are to be observed. He may often find options you did not even consider.

You can trust your lawyer implicitly because he must maintain absolute secrecy vis-à-vis third parties and must not accept assignments from others which would conflict with your interests.

Professional secrecy is protected by law, so that full independence of the lawyer from the Republic of Austria is guaranteed as well.
