M&A and Governance Practice Area Review: Austria


By Clemens Philipp Schindler, Schindler Attorneys As a recent study in M&A Review (January 2016) reports, Austria saw approximately 330 deals in 2015, an increase of 37 per cent from 2014. This makes 2015 one of the top 10 years since 1988, with the period spanning 2000 to 2007 being the strongest, peaking in 2005 with over 500 deals. For both public M&A as well as private M&A activities an increase can be reported for 2015 and early 2016.

Drawing the Line in Contractual Claims


By Humphrey Lloyd QC and Jennifer Jones, Atkin Chambers Contracts often limit the losses recoverable for a default, for example saying that those which are “indirect” or “consequential” are not recoverable. Where is the line to be drawn? If the contract is governed by the law of England and Wales, a court or arbitral tribunal will probably get some help from seeing what might be allowed in law in a comparable situation for damages for breach of contract.

Terminations for Convenience: Contracting for the “Upper Hand”


By Trent Cotney, Trent Cotney PA Over the past 40 years, construction contracts have become increasingly one-sided in favour of the project owner. Contracts have evolved to include a myriad of provisions to shelter owners from liability. One in particular has allowed owners to gain even more control over the contracting process by creating more favourable termination provisions: the termination for convenience clause.
