Privatisations

CHSH is one of the leading law firms when it comes to privatisations. Over the course of the past 20 years, we have handled Austria’s largest privatisations in the fields of telecommunications, postal services, aviation, airports, tobacco, steel, energy and construction.

Our privatisation experience includes structuring privatisations as spin-offs, the sale of majority or minority equity stakes, and IPOs.

In addition to providing our clients with legal expertise, it goes without saying that we also provide transaction management know-how and support which draws on long-term experience.
