Schoenherr advised Energie Graz, Energie Steiermark, EVN, illwerke vkw, Innsbrucker Kommunalbetriebe AG, Kelag and Linz AG on the foundation of a joint venture in the e-mobility sector. The seven shareholders of the newly founded E-VO eMobility GmbH are part of the Austrian Federal Association for Electric Mobility (BEÖ) and are among the developers and initiators of the largest public charging system in Austria, the BEÖ charging network, with around 5,000 charging points. The joint venture aims to make the charging network more efficient, stable and secure.
"We are proud to have successfully advised on this important step towards mass market viability of e-mobility," said Roman Perner, partner at Schoenherr and co-head of the firm's corporate/m&a practice. "Through the newly founded E-VO eMobility GmbH, the legal framework was created to massively expand the already existing charging infrastructure."
The Schoenherr team was led by Roman Perner (partner) and Hanno Wollmann (partner), and further consisted of Michael Marschall (attorney at law), Marco Thorbauer (attorney at law; tax law), Tobias Hayden (associate; tax law) and Gabriel Ebner (associate).
