Austria > Banking and finance

Schindler Attorneys‘ banking and finance group is co-led by Martin Abram and Christoph Urbanek, who joined the firm in July 2021 from DLA Piper Weiss-Tessbach. The team has a key strength handling banking work at the intersection with transactional and tax matters, while mandates involving debt capital instruments are also part of its day-to-day business. Funds and investment firms make up a large share of its client portfolio but it also includes companies. Christian Thaler left the firm at the end of 2020.
