Austria: Private Funds Analysis 2015

Current trends in the private equity market include equity only deals, secondary transactions, bank driven auction processes, bolt-on acquisitions and market consolidation. The regulatory environment is also active for lawyers due to further need of clarification following the implementation of the AIFMD. Six lawyers are recommended in this chapter.
