about Barnert Egermann Illigasch Rechtsanwälte
Banking and Finance:
The team at Barnert Egermann Illigasch Rechtsanwälte GmbH advises private equity investors on the financing of investments in Austrian entities, and developers in the alternative energy sector on financing arrangements. Alexander Illigasch assists BNP Paribas Fortis with regulatory, compliance and transactional matters.
Corporate and M&A:
Barnert Egermann Illigasch Rechtsanwälte GmbH’s well-regarded corporate practice, led by Michael Barnert, has a focus on the energy sector, acting for clients such as EVN and Wien Energie. It also expanded its work for Gruner + Jahr, and regularly advises ASFINAG.
EU and Competition:
The ‘excellent’ and ‘efficient’ team at Barnert Egermann Illigasch Rechtsanwälte GmbH represents blue-chip domestic companies and some international clients, focusing on merger control matters and the defence of cartel proceedings. Isabella Hartung ‘is not afraid to find new ways’, and continues to represent Gebrüder Weiss in cartel proceedings against more than 40 Austrian freight forwarding companies.
‘Always to the point’ and ‘focused on clients’ needs’, Barnert Egermann Illigasch Rechtsanwälte GmbH has seen an increase in contentious employment issues. The ‘quickthinking’ Clemens Egermann is recommended for his ‘strength at trial’, and recently acted in relation to a challenge to a blue-collar works council election in Lower Austria. Clients include BNP Paribas Fortis, Gebrüder Weiss and Rittal.
