Günther HanslikCMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz Rechtsanwälte GmbH

CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz Rechtsanwälte GmbH‘s two-pronged approach is divided into its financing transactions work led by Günther Hanslik and its regulatory work led by Martin Zuffer. The former includes instructions from financial services providers and, to a lesser extent, from borrowers on corporate, acquisition, real estate and project finance as well as refinancings and restructurings. Cross-border elements are a regular feature in this and are handled in close conjunction with other offices across the firm’s network, most notably in the CEE and SEE regions, while English law aspects are routinely covered by Vienna-based Marcell Clark. Advising on administrative proceedings, fintech and matters at the intersection with capital markets are typical instructions in the regulatory arena.
