Lawyer Rankings

Austria > Banking and finance

DSC Doralt Seist Csoklich Rechtsanwälte GmbH almost exclusively acts for lenders, including many major Austrian banks, and stands out for its regulatory capabilities. This leads to regular instructions – typically led by Markus Kellner – on PSD II, new product launches, Austrian market entry and crypto currency and includes defending banks in litigation against consumer protection agencies and individual customers. Kellner co-heads the practice with Christoph Diregger, who has recently been most active advising on various financing instruments. Ulrich Edelmann has left the firm.
