The firm: Schoenherr Slovenia is a branch of the international law firm Schoenherr – Attorneys at Law, based in Vienna, Austria, which was one of the first foreign firms to enter the Slovenian market in 2001. Since then, the firm has developed into one of the leading law firms on the Slovenian market.

The team is composed of approximately 20 internationally trained lawyers, all experienced and focused on at least one of Schoenherr’s practice areas. Most of these lawyers have a strong working knowledge of English, German and Croatian/Serbian. In addition to the firm in Ljubljana, the Schoenherr – Attorneys at Law firm has offices in 13 other locations/countries in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as desks covering four further markets.

Areas of practice: As one of the few business-law focused law firms in the region, Schoenherr offers foreign and domestic clients the complete range of transaction support, including advice on national and cross-border M&A, private equity investments, real estate acquisitions, financial debt restructurings, loan portfolio transfers and project finance, as well as non-transactional work such as competition advice, employment, corporate housekeeping and litigation.

While the core practice groups are banking and finance and corporate/M&A, specialised practice groups for compliance and white-collar crime, dispute resolution, EU and competition, insolvency and restructuring, insurance, IP, IT and life sciences, labour and employment, real estate and regulatory round up the fully-fletched business-related legal services offered by the firm. Such a high level of specialisation enables it to tailor concise teams of specialised professionals for each individual project.
