Schoenherr was awarded the “Austria M&A Legal Adviser of the Year” by Mergermarket at the European M&A Awards Gala on 31 March 2022.
Once again, Schoenherr’s excellent M&A performance has been acknowledged by the leading business intelligence provider Mergermarket. Only a few weeks ago, Schoenherr again achieved excellent results in Mergermarket’s league tables – with extraordinary rankings for over a decade now.
“We are proud to have Schoenherr’s strong position in the market recognised,” said Roman Perner, co-head of Schoenherr’s M&A practice, who accepted the award on the firm’s behalf. “The award reflects the excellent work of our Corporate/M&A teams who have supported some of the most impactful and sophisticated deals in the country this past year.”
Some of the most noteworthy M&A transactions Schoenherr has advised on during the reference period include Starwood Capital Group’s public offer for CA Immo, Cerba HealthCare’s acquisition of Lifebrain Group from Investindustrial, and Sanofi’s acquisition of Origrimm Biotechnology.
