The renowned Salzburg law firm has set the course for the future. Almost no other local law firm can offer a team of four younger partners, which an experienced competitor praises as “very motivated”.

An important pillar of the firm continues to be its good contacts to the city and state of Salzburg, which repeatedly rely on Stefan Guggenberger and Dr. Alfred Ebner in public procurement law.
