Lawyer Rankings

Austria > Insolvency and corporate recovery

DORDA Rechtsanwälte GmbH’s broad offering attracts an equally wide client base consisting of lenders, borrowers, debtors and creditors. Lenders and non-performing borrowers retain the team for reorganisation and pre-insolvency restructuring advice, which includes distressed M&A typically led by Christian Ritschka, while creditors, and to a lesser extent debtors, are represented in insolvency proceedings and insolvency-related litigation. Team head Felix Hörlsberger is a key contact for litigation and, due to his insurance law expertise, is regularly instructed by insurance sector players. Financial restructuring mandates are often led by finance expert Tibor Varga.

Austria > Capital markets

DORDA Rechtsanwälte GmbH has traditionally been focusing on equity capital market transactions but has recently been more active advising issuers and financial institutions on the issuance of notes, including high-yield transactions, alongside compliance and regulatory issues. Much of its work takes place at various intersections such as banking and finance as well as corporate and M&A, which is a reflection of its interdisciplinary approach. Key individuals include Tibor Varga, who regularly handles finance-related work, public M&A and capital markets expert Andreas Mayr, Christoph Brogyányi  (corporate, M&A and capital markets) and Andreas Zahradnik (banking, capital markets law, M&A and restructuring).
