COTTYN VIENNA is specialized in working for corporate and private clients and has extensive experience in assisting them with all their day-to-day business in the Austrian Republic. Also, as experienced project lawyers, COTTYN advices on all sorts of (international) contracts, cross-border investments and M&A.

COTTYN VIENNA creates a unique advantage to European clients in having a regular contact in their home country, in combination with a contact in the Austrian Republic who can assist them direct, hands-on and in different languages. The COTTYN team in Vienna is, besides in German, fluent in Italian, Dutch, French, and English.

Clients are not “left on their own” but guided through the whole process: investigation of possibilities, performance of due diligence, setting up the required legal & tax structure, purchase of land (greenfield development), acquisition of a company or setting up a joint venture, drafting & negotiating of all necessary contracts, permitting, assisting and representing clients in their contacts and relations with national and local authorities, as well as arbitration and litigation.

We offer the best of both worlds: home standard quality with excellent local knowledge.
