Testimonials

We like the flexibility in the firm’s approach and the lawyers’ “out of the box” attitude (which obviously builds on a very strong command of the law, both procedural and material). In particular, we benefit from Anne-Karin Grill’s industry knowledge. This aspect strikes us as increasingly valuable when we get drawn into legal disputes.’

‘Our business is not limited to Austria and we appreciate lawyers, who have an international outlook as well. With AKG ADVISORY we get just that.

In attorney-client relationships, we look for partnerships that are not only transactional. Besides the obvious requirements of legal qualification and experience, personality also plays a big part. The professionals at AKG ADVISORY are straightforward, committed and easy to work with. AKG ADVISORY stands for the kind of professionalism that we expect and that just makes our lives easier.

Anne-Karin Grill is our main point of contact and she has proven that she is on top of her game. She truly is an international dispute resolution pro. We value her advice not only in terms of process design and procedural tactics. She’s an outstanding lawyer, who feels at home in more than just one jurisdiction.’

‘Anne-Karin has accompanied us in informal negotiation settings (mediation) and in highly-contentious conflict situations (arbitration). She never seems out of place and has a natural instinct when it comes to recommending smart procedural choices. It simply feels good to have Anne-Karin on our team.
