Eversheds has named a new managing partner for its Vienna office, as the incumbent steps down after completing his two-year term.
Georg Röhsner, who headed the Austria office’s IT team, was elected unanimously by partners to managing partner after standing unopposed for the role. He will replace Alexander Stolitzka, who steps down after completing a two-year term.
Röhsner began his two-year term on 1 January 2013, while Stolitzka has returned to a fee-earning role and will head the office’s real estate and retail team.
