Austria: Schoenherr named Austrian M&A Legal Adviser 2018 by Mergermarket
Schoenherr received the "Austria M&A Legal Adviser of the Year" award from Mergermarket, a leading independent international M&A intelligence service. It is the fourth time Schoenherr's performance has been recognised by Mergermarket following top rankings in 2014, 2015 and 2017.
"We are pleased to have been recognised with this award. It shows our excellent market position, both in the high-end sectors and mid-market. Our strategic decision to form industry-focused services has proven right," commented Schoenherr partner Alexander Popp, who heads the firm's corporate M&A practice group.
Our M&A team received the award at the European M&A Gala in London on 6 December 2018. At the ceremony, the organisers highlighted several prominent M&A transactions where Schoenherr acted as legal advisor. These included the take-over of German-Austrian residential real estate group BUWOG by German Vonovia, the largest public M&A transaction in Austria in 2017-18.
