After an outstanding financial year with an increase in turnover of around 9%, Schoenherr is on course for expansion. "Upper Austria is a growing economic area with a strong university uniting innovation, industry and technology. We will be closer to our Upper Austrian clients and look forward to an even stronger cooperation", said Michael Lagler, managing partner of Schoenherr.
Arabella Eichinger, who comes from Upper Austria and was appointed partner on 1 February 2019, will manage the new office. She is looking forward to the opening with her new team: "Upper Austria has been on our radar for quite some time now. It's the logical response to our steadily growing client base there. With leading experts in Austria and our strong CEE/SEE network, we can now offer a significant added value locally."
Schoenherr is headquartered in Vienna and is one of the most renowned commercial law firms. A dynamic and innovative team of experienced experts and young talents at currently 14 locations in CEE/SEE offer top legal advice in all commercial law aspects. Linz will be the 15th Schoenherr office.
