CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz has established a dedicated, separate competence center for English law – to serve its operations across CEE and SEE countries – with members including Vienna-based Partners Marcell Clark, Alexander Rakosi, and David Kohl and Solicitor Anna Freund.

According to CMS, the English Law team “focuses on financing and corporate/M&A transactions under English law as well as dispute resolution. The English Law Desk members advise clients globally but have a special focus on the jurisdictions of the CEE and SEE countries, where CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz has offices.”

According to the firm, Marcell Clark, Alexander Rakosi, and David Kohl “and their teams have extensive expertise in advising on banking and finance as well as corporate/M&A transactions governed by English law, including drafting and negotiating loan and transactional documents as well as providing legal opinions and general legal advice on English law,” while Anna Freund is a “disputes expert qualified in English law with extensive experience in handling litigation and arbitration in various industries.”

“The unique expertise of our team will be instrumental in successfully building the English Law Desk and ensuring that our clients receive first-class legal services in this specialist area,” Clark commented. “This will enable us to offer our clients an even more comprehensive service and a wider range of high-quality legal services in the future.”
