A brief introduction
CHSH is one of Austria’s leading corporate law firms, with an integrated practice in Central and Eastern Europe. With a team of over 180 lawyers, we guarantee our clients experience and expertise in all areas of corporate and commercial law, both in Austria and Central and Eastern Europe.
Our focus is on supporting our clients in their corporate decision making process. This means that we do not content ourselves with standard solutions, but instead we strive to develop and provide the best possible solutions for every challenge, tailored to each client’s needs.
On the one hand, this demands extensive specialist knowledge, motivation and commitment, and on the other, an excellent understanding of our clients’ businesses. Through our organisational structure, which allies our core teams with particular specialists, we are able to manage clients and transactions efficiently and effectively.
At CHSH, we are proud to be able to look back over a very successful history. Over the last 20 years, CHSH has been involved in virtually all of the top transactions in Austria. This is what really distinguishes us as one of the leading law firms in the fields of mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, takeovers, privatisations, financing, and real estate and construction. We also enjoy an enviable reputation for our handling of large-scale commercial litigation and arbitration. The fact that we understand our clients’ businesses has helped us achieve a high rate of success. It is no coincidence that we are the first port of call for a number of long-term clients whom we advise comprehensively on all of their day-to-day legal matters. We apply our litigation experience when drafting agreements and are often able to prevent disputes with our clients’ counterparties before they arise. This expertise – combined with our years of experience in Central and Eastern Europe and our Lex Mundi network – ensures that our clients receive high-quality and sound advice, across disciplines and across borders.
