Austria: Investigations Analysis 2015

According to the 2013 Eurobarometer, Austria is among the best-rated countries for the deterrent effects of successful prosecutions in corruption cases. The Public Prosecutor’s Office against White-Collar Crime and Corruption was established in September 2011 and since then the number of staff employed has steadily increased. In April 2013 an online whistleblower hotline was launched to facilitate investigations. With the fight against corruption ramping up, law enforcement agencies look set to continue focusing on investigating economic crimes. Five “outstanding” practitioners are listed in this chapter.

Rechtsanwaltsbüro Soyer Kier Stuefer garners two inclusions this year, including the “eminent” Richard Soyer. His expertise encompasses corporate and financial crime and he is a “top choice” for clients in the Austrian market. Roland Kier is another “key figure” who is “tremendously knowledgeable” in the investigations arena.

Kollmann Wolm’s Lukas Kollmann is a “leading authority” on corruption-related law and internal investigations and his advice is “highly sought after”.

At Cerha Hempel Spiegelfeld Hlawati Peter Lewisch is a “standout” practitioner. He has a “very active” investigations practice and is known in the market for his “high-quality” work.

At his own firm, Otto Dietrich has a “strong reputation” for his work and is “greatly respected” for his experience in the field.
