Eisenberger & Herzog has announced that Senior Partner Georg Eisenberger will leave the Austrian firm on June 30, 2020, after twenty-five years of partnership, to establish a boutique law firm for administrative, constitutional, and European law, specializing in public commercial law and unique legal cases. In addition to its headquarters in Graz, the firm will also have an office in Brussels.
“Moving forward, I aim to prioritize my work on managing a select group of distinct public commercial law clients through a boutique practice, and on my professorial lecturing and research activities at the university," commented Eisenberger, who heads the firm's Public Law practice group in a statement on the firm's website. "I am proud to look back on my work contributing to E&H’s development and prosperity, but now I plan to dedicate my efforts to a new concentration within the legal profession. I am happy to leave E&H in good hands, and will continue to follow the progress of their exceptional success story with great interest."
E&H Partners Ulrike Sehrschon and Tatjana Dworak will assume the leadership of E&H’s Public Law team.
“We would like to thank Georg for his 25 years of commitment to the rise of E&H," said Alric Ofenheimer, the head of E&H’s Graz office. "From the very beginning, he was a strategist who played a key role in the growth and success of our firm. We will always remain closely associated with Georg Eisenberger and will continue to enjoy working with him."
According to Eisenberger, the firm "will change its name within an agreed-upon time frame."
