What our employees say
about CHSH:

Dr. Sarah Wared, LL.M., Senior Attorney

I have worked as an attorney in Austrian and German law at the Vienna office in the M&A/Corporate Law field since 2012. I was previously in New York City, Singapore and Düsseldorf, working with leading corporate law firms and in a legal department. At CHSH I was immediately given a great deal of responsibility and included in the work of national and international clients. This is a considerable challenge and calls for good self-organisation. Good teamwork is essential when working at CHSH. I regularly work in big teams on time-consuming M&A transactions, one of the key areas of CHSH. Camaraderie and sustainability, not just with regard to the employees, shape the CHSH culture. The team spirit between colleagues is particularly strengthened through athletic activities such as running, skiing and football.


Mag. Christopher Peitsch, Attorney

I recently began my fifth year at CHSH. What I highly value in CHSH is that there is a great deal of direct contact with international and national clients, whether in the form of court proceedings, appointments or conference calls. Our legal, social, as well as linguistic skills are thereby encouraged, and thus our personality itself is developed. In addition, I got to know CHSH as an employer who supports the development and long-term commitment/loyalty of talented employees and makes it possible to participate in international conferences for example. My audit partner, who is also employed at CHSH, and I were also actively supported in connection with the bar exam, through a completely undisturbed study period and offers from several partners to attend crash courses in their specialised fields. The good work atmosphere is also mutually supportive and helpful, leading to,  amongst other  things, common hobbies and recreational activities such as the firm’s own football team, laser-tag evenings and trips with the entire department.


Mag. Jakob Hartig, LL.M., Attorney

For almost four years I have worked in the Corporate & Commercial Law Department at CHSH. My activity in the firm is extremely varied, as I deal with legal issues that depend on what a client requires or wishes from the most varied areas of company and commercial law. These experiences were tremendously valuable for me, especially while preparing for the bar examination.  I also enjoyed that at the beginning of my work at CHSH I was immediately fully involved in cases and was encouraged to have direct contact with the clients. The good contact amongst colleagues is also great!

What I really like about working at CHSH is that I gain an insight into interesting cases involving well-known clients and that I work as part of a team in which I am able to demonstrate my abilities time and time again. Last but not least, the team spirit among colleagues, which is given a boost by joint activities, also ensures that I feel very at ease in my job.
