Schoenherr has announced that it will open a new office in Linz this autumn.
Schoenherr Managing Partner Michael Lagler commented: “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.”
Arabella Eichinger, who comes from Upper Austria and was appointed Partner in February of this year (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on February 15, 2019), will manage the new office and will be joined with seven other lawyers.
"Upper Austria has been on our radar for quite some time now,” Eichinger said. “It's a 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."
