We are a modern law firm focusing on innovation and creative industries. On the one hand innovative and creative personalities have the desire to protect their intellectual property rights, but on the other hand they have also the most diverse individual needs in other legal matters. Our main focus is on consulting in the implementation of new business ideas and business concepts.
Our clients include national and international companies in the fields of technology, research, design, art, culture and sports. We provide advice and assistance to national and international designers and fashion labels as well as representatives of the international patent industry, universities, research institutions, public institutions, artists, sports associations, cultural institutions and non-profit organizations.
Advising and representing our target group of clients in commercial law requires well-founded specialized knowledge. Our specific expertise is based on practical experience regarding the needs and requirements of our clients, as well as on our well-founded know-how on the relevant fields of law.
Due to our expertise and long-term cooperations with national and international law firms and patent lawyers, tax and business consultants, investors and PR-agencies you can rely on a wide repertoire of know-how. Wherever your plans may lead you, strong international networking enables us to assist you beyond Austrian borders.
Continuous support and consultation can help avoid the majority of legal disputes in advance. However, we are of course always prepared to assist you whenever “things get out of hand”. We discuss with our client’s settlements both in and out of court (going to court is not always the quickest way to achieving your goals).
Whether you seek our assistance in professional or personal matters, it is our declared goal to offer every client top-quality support and assistance and to achieve the best possible result on our client’s behalf.Show more +
