We are a boutique law firm focusing in commercial law and dispute resolution.
Corporate and Commercial law: We assist our international clients in complex M&A transactions, project financing and guarantee a successful post-merger-integration with the target company.
Dispute Resolution: Another focus of our firm lies on representing our clients in challenging litigation proceedings and international arbitration.
When representing our clients' interests, we look "beyond the legal horizon" and often work with selected business consultants to find tailor-made solutions. The founding partners have been assisting various multinational companies with their projects in different industrial areas for many years.
Our founding partners Dr. Alice Meissner and Bernhard Passin possess many years of experience in different business areas:
Dr. Alice Meissner has many years of experience in advising multinational Chinese groups with their direct investments (FDI) in Austria, including post-merger integration such as the establishment of a new group-wide corporate structure and the implementation of cross-border compliance management. She also represented parties in various international arbitration proceedings under ICC, VIAC and CIETAC arbitration rules.
Bernhard Passin is a passionate litigation specialist. He has acted as lead counsel in several proceedings before the ECJ and the Austrian Supreme Court. His motto: "In the courtroom at the latest, the wheat is separated from the chaff and a client is usually very grateful to be guided through stormy civil proceedings by an experienced litigator". Most recently, he is known as one of the leading litigators in Austria regarding claims for damages in favour of diesel car owners.
