Austria: Schoenherr promotes litigation expert Maximilian Raschhofer to counsel

12 June 2018 | general

Schoenherr recently promoted litigation lawyer Maximilian Raschhofer to counsel in February this year. A member of Schoenherr's litigation team in Vienna for over eight years, Raschhofer specialises in civil law and the enforcement of arbitral awards in Austria. Additionally, he has vast experience in complex liability claims in the healthcare sector entailing the reimbursement of costs by social security providers.

According to Schoenherr partner Christoph Lindinger, who heads the dispute resolution practice group, there are few clients who exclusively have litigation proceedings based locally. "Almost always either one of the parties in the case or their assets are located abroad. Maximilian Raschhofer is a skilled lawyer, who employs the tools of European and international procedural law for the benefit of our clients," commented Lindinger.

Schoenherr partner Andreas Natterer, who specialises in litigation and life sciences, stressed the growing importance of Raschhofer's focus on Austrian legislation related to the reimbursement of medicinal products. "Last year's amendment to the ASVG (the Austrian general social security law) saw a further reduction of the reimbursement level for medication covered by social security. This development has led to an increase in the need for legal advisory, so we are pleased that we can count on Maximilian Raschhofer's expertise in this niche field. He represents regularly pharmaceutical companies in claims for reimbursement and advises them with great professionalism and confidence."

Maximilian Raschhofer holds doctorate and master's degrees in law from the University of Vienna. Prior to joining Schoenherr, he was vice-president of the European Center for E-commerce and Internet Law in Vienna for three years. Additionally, he is a sought-after medical and pharmaceutical law expert for Austrian and international legal publications.
