Corporate / M&A

Our specialists guarantee top-level legal advice. This means home-field advantage in tackling every challenge, thanks to the persistence and absolute commitment of our powerful team.

The Challenge

The proper structuring and implementing of transactions is one of the principal tasks and at the same time one of the greatest challenges for legal advisors.

Whether dealing with start-ups, the structuring of complex corporate transactions or pre-transaction reorganisations, it is crucial to devise tailor-made and enduring solutions for clients. A good grasp of the many opportunities offered by corporate law is necessary to offer competent legal advice and enable our clients to achieve their goals.

Particularly the strategic complexity of M&A transactions, which requires close cooperation between investment bankers, corporate lawyers and corporate finance specialists, gives practical experience, profound market knowledge and the ability to optimally coordinate all participants added importance. At fwp, we believe that corporate lawyers need to assume a central and leading role in this context in order to safeguard client interests in all phases of the transaction.

Our Expertise

Developing optimal solutions in the corporate area requires extensive knowledge and vast experience in many different legal areas, including corporate law, tax law, capital market and takeover law, labour as well as tenancy law. We handle private and public transactions and advise national and international companies and entrepreneurs  on a vast array of corporate law issues.

In the corporate law area, accompanying clients on the sale and acquisition of companies is one of the core skills of fwp. Our work in this regard covers all aspects necessary for the successful conclusion of a transaction, beginning with the undertaking of legal due diligence up through the resolution of anti-trust issues. In particular our broad experience in the private and public sectors, especially relating to cross-border transactions, takeover bids, private equity and venture capital, ensures the highest degree of efficiency and deal stability.

Our Team

The partners responsible for corporate law and M&A are Markus Fellner, Paul Luiki, Lukas Flener and Florian Kranebitter, who work with their teams to develop optimal solutions for fwp’s clients. Especially the combination of legal and business expertise, based on education and experience alike, has proven vital for success.

The team members have extensive experience, have authored numerous publications and regularly appear as speakers at symposiums and seminars.
