Vienna, December 2022. Fellner Wratzfeld & Partner (fwp) has advised SORAVIA, one of the leading real estate groups in Austria and Germany, on the acquisition of interests in Loisium Holding GmbH. Closing took place on 2 December 2022.

SORAVIA and mDrei are pooling their know-how and hospitality activities in Xenios Hospitality Holding with the goal of enhancing the development of the renowned LOISIUM brand and investing in more locations. fwp has supported SORAVIA in the corporate-law and M&A aspects of the transaction. The fwp advisory team comprised fwp partner Markus Fellner and fwp attorney Peter Blaschke, and was supported by fwp associate Christoph Haberhauer (all Corporate/M&A).
