COUP IN THE AUSTRIAN LEGAL MARKET: TOP CONSTRUCTION LAW EXPERTS JOIN WOLF THEISS
Vienna, June 25, 2012 – WOLF THEISS has expanded its Real Estate Practice Group by bringing in Georg Karasek, a pre-eminent Austrian construction lawyer, and Wolfgang Müller, Karasek's long-standing Partner and right hand man.
Karasek and Müller will join Wolf Theiss as Partners and bring along their team of construction law experts. The group is established at the high-end of the market and is known for delivering comprehensive results on projects reaching from tenders to ongoing supervision and advising on matters of the construction industry.
"The technical background and professional experience of our new team completes our expertise on the international stage. Clients and contractors increasingly expect these qualities from their legal advisors in the fields of construction contracts and construction disputes. This holds true in particular for plant construction and infrastructure projects," says Erik Steger, Managing Partner of Wolf Theiss.
"We wanted to strategically complement our real estate law expertise with equally strong construction law skills. This is only possible with the best lawyers," adds Peter Oberlechner, Head of Wolf Theiss's Real Estate Practice Group, which covers 12 countries.
Karasek and Müller are among the most respected experts in the field of Austrian construction law today. In fact, Karasek is ranked by Chambers in Band 1 in the "key individual" category. "Many of our clients are set up internationally and therefore seek support not only in construction law matters. We have found in Wolf Theiss the ideal platform for providing more effective multidisciplinary services to our clients in the whole CEE/SEE area," says Georg Karasek.
