Testimonials

A perfect team. Very diverse and complementary capabilities in the teams chosen.

Alexander Klauser: Excellent knowledge of courtroom processes. Very organised.

Gerald Otto: Very strong case analysis; excellent reactivity to cases created by the adversary.

The team is always reachable, clear and structured in our cooperation. There is no “lost” communication time and the team was also very helpful when a new employee of our association took over the task.’

The team and especially Mr. Klauser are precise in their answers. They also say clearly, if they consider a case to be lost. For me the most important issue lays in their capability to create a “one level playing field” between the weaker and the stronger parties.

I really enjoy Mr. Klauser’s focused communication and clearly structured processes.’

bkp’s senior partner Alexander Klauser is one of Austria’s leading experts in consumer law. In the courtroom, he is an outstanding litigator.

bkp is unique in the sense that there is no other law firm in Austria of their size with a specialisation in consumer law and, in particular, collective redress. We have been working with bkp successfully for more than 20 years.
