Binder Grösswang, one of Austria’s leading commercial law firms, has once again been honoured by an international legal publication. The renowned British publisher Chambers and Partners has designated Binder Grösswang as the Austrian Law Firm of the Year 2023.

“It is a great honour for us to be able to take home this important award. Becoming the Austrian Law Firm of the Year is the result of outstanding teamwork and the high trust placed in us by our clients – of which we are very proud. The award confirms our strategy of pursuing a path of continuous further development with a focus on essentials,” commented Andreas Hable and Stefan Tiefenthaler, Managing Partners at Binder Grösswang.

The annual Chambers Europe Awards are among the most highly recognized distinctions in the legal sector and honour the work of national and international law firms in Europe. These awards give recognition to exceptional achievements by a law firm in the most important legal fields of the region as well as impressive strategic growth and outstanding legal counsel.

Chambers Europe Awards were presented at a special ceremony held on 25 May 2023 in Milan. Andreas Hable, Stefan Tiefenthaler, Angelika Pallwein-Prettner, Christian Klausegger and Emanuel Welten, partners at Binder Grösswang, accepted the Austrian Law Firm of the Year Award on behalf of Binder Grösswang.

Chambers identifies the best law firms in each region on the basis of its entire research of the last twelve months for the Chambers Europe Guide. This includes the legal counsel provided for the most important transactions of the year and reflects feedback from the market and from clients.

During the past year, in line with Binder Grösswang’s motto “Law. Forward Thinking”, the firm focussed particularly on (legal) questions of the future. Digital issues, online platforms, green bonds and sustainable financing, crypto assets or, for example, the establishment of companies in virtual environments will be typical matters requiring legal counsel in the future. Binder Grösswang is a pioneer in major trends of the legal profession such as legal tech, digital law and sustainability. Through this future-oriented approach, problems can be identified at an early stage and successfully resolved.
