WOLF THEISS WINS ‘AUSTRIAN LAW FIRM OF THE YEAR’ AT 2012 CHAMBERS EUROPE AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE
Vienna, 14 May 2012 – WOLF THEISS has been awarded ‘Austrian Law Firm of the Year’ for the third time at the 2012 Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence, held on 10 May 2012 in Amsterdam.
The Central, Eastern and Southeastern European law firm won the prestigious award in 2008 and 2009 and was named Austrian Client Service Law Firm of the Year in 2011.
The Chambers Awards represent one of the most prestigious prizes that competing firms and lawyers can win at the international level and honour outstanding law firms and legal professionals around the world. The awards are judged based upon authority in key practice areas and achievements over the last 12 months, including notable work, strategic growth, excellence in client service, and contribution to the legal profession.
Commenting on the win, Erik Steger, Wolf Theiss Managing Partner, said: “Receipt of this coveted European award highlights the quality of our firm and we’re thrilled that our continued achievements are being recognised once again within the industry. We are especially honoured that Chambers and our clients have recognized Wolf Theiss for our service excellence which we firmly believe has been tantamount to our success. Despite our continuous expansion into the region, we have never lost sight of the importance of Austria to our accomplishments.”
The award symbolises the dedication and expertise of Wolf Theiss’ Austrian team, whose recent activity includes advising on the conversion of Puma into a European Company (SE), advising McArthur Glenn on its 5000 m² expansion of the Designer Outlet Parndorf and advising Erste Bank on the acquisition of Intermarket Bank, Austria's largest factoring bank.
Wolf Theiss opened its first office in Austria more than 50 years ago. Today, the Wolf Theiss team brings together over 325 lawyers from a diverse range of backgrounds, working in 12 countries throughout the CEE/SEE region.
