WMWP Rechtsanwälte decided years ago to promote internationalization within its own ranks. Therefore, WMWP has been one of the driving forces of the alliance since the founding phase of act legal. Over the past few years, act legal has grown from 5 to 10 law firms in some of the largest European business centres with a clear goal, which is to develop a strong cross-border footprint and shared standards of legal services so as to ensure consistent top-notch quality throughout Europe. As part of its bold strategy, act legal is now taking the necessary step towards the integration of all offices under a common brand. This comes as a natural step further, propelled by the aspiration to provide clients, international companies operating on the European market, with synergistic international expertise, integrated cross-border capabilities and combined multi-disciplinary transnational teams, while ensuring local intelligence based on excellent local markets knowledge. Dr. Martin Wiedenbauer: At WMWP Rechtsanwälte, we value and practice continuous knowledge transfer and exchange of experience, which is the only way to keep our finger on the pulse of the times. This aspect also represents the be-all and end-all in our partnership with act legal. We see ourselves as a transnational team, each with its own professionals and experts within various areas of law. But it is only together that we can fully explore our potential with the clients’ best interest in mind. Dr. Sven Tischendorf, MBA: In recent years, act legal has established itself as a first-class alternative to large international law firms, both on a national level and in international transactional business. The combination of the service profile of a large international law firm and the efficient structures of a boutique is unique in Europe. With act legal, demanding corporate clientele is guaranteed top-quality individual advice at an attractive price. With a unified brand and corporate style for all 10 law firms and a new modern joint website, the rebranding marks the logical next step in the evolution of the alliance. The aligned style reflects the strong years-long cooperation between the individual offices and enhances a powerful approach to further strengthen act legal’s unique proposition in Europe. act legal benefits from the combined forces of around 400 lawyers, tax consultants and business experts in 10 European markets. Strategically located in Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain and the Netherlands, act legal aims to expand further to cover mainland Europe in the years to come. Now we act. As...

WMWP Rechtsanwälte GmbH, led by partner Dr. Paul Koppenwallner, LL.M., advised and supported the Viennese start-up Wowflow in the current financing round with its legal expertise. The two founders Drazen Ivanis and Misha Voronko had a clear idea who should accompany them through this process: For us, it was important to have a legal partner that can help to focus on the most important aspects of the Pre-Seed deal, set the appropriate legal structure for future rounds, and be very responsive in the dynamically changing environment of the fundraising process – and Paul Koppenwallner simply exceeded our expectations. The investment in the amount of €300,000 is expected to drive growth in the German-speaking region. The accelerating digitization of the conservative real estate sector, combined with the rising trend toward outsourcing facility management and maintenance services, helped the company triple its revenue in 2020 and attract clients such as Forstinger and Reiwag Facility Services. Dr. Paul Koppenwallner warmly congratulates the company and says of the collaboration: Wowflow is pursuing an exciting, future-oriented concept that can further leverage synergies and efficiency in the real estate sector. We are very pleased that wowflow has placed its trust in us for the current financing...

Because the life cycle of the aquatic centre in Klagenfurt will end in the next few years, the city has decided to implement a major infrastructure project. After a location was found and based on the results of a public participation process, an innovation partner was sought through a Europe-wide tender. Porr has emerged as a development and innovation partner and will develop the project together with the city until it is ready for implementation. On November 16, 2020, the necessary contracts were signed in Klagenfurt City Hall. The development and innovation partnership will not focus exclusively on the aquatic centre. It also includes the development of a much larger planning area with regard to add-ons, taking into account the Klagenfurt SmartCity strategy, sustainable energy supply and orientation towards a federal sports center with a focus on triathlon. Dr Martin Wiedenbauer, who led the legal team, congratulated the city on the conclusion of this complex process and is convinced that the new path taken will lead to very good results for the city.
