These extraordinary efforts are standard across our 15 offices, and this award underlines our prowess in the market", said Managing Partner Michael Lagler. "Congratulations to our Austrian teams on this award – one that joins the recent 'Austria Law Firm of the Year' award by Chambers, and also to our international colleagues who are an integral part of this success."
