Schoenherr practice areas and lawyers achieve success in Chambers Global rankings
Schoenherr practice areas in Austria and across Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) attained eight rankings in the top tier (Band 1) awarded by Chambers and Partners — the most of any Austria-based law firm. In total, the firm received a total of 20 practice-group-level rankings in the 2014 edition.
In addition to these rankings, Schoenherr’s lawyers also received a further 38 rankings on an individual basis, 10 of which were in the highest tier. Moreover, the firm’s lawyers garnered more than 30 mentions in the ‘spotlight tables’, in which Chambers Global highlights exceptionally qualified practitioners in the categories Foreign Experts and Experts Based Abroad in a number of jurisdictions.
Schoenherr has retained its Band 1 ranking for five of the Vienna office’s practice areas: banking and finance; corporate/mergers and acquisitions; dispute resolution; intellectual property; and restructuring/insolvency. In Bulgaria, Schoenherr ranked in Band 1 in the corporate/commercial category, while the firm also attained this top-tier ranking for the same category in Montenegro, as well as in Serbia.
