Public Law

The experts of the Public Law practice group advise on all issues of public commercial law. The team has clout, exceptional expertise, and the necessary stamina in challenging cases. We are particularly strong in environmental law and energy law.

This practice group, led by Ulrike Sehrschön and Tatjana Katalan, is one of the largest and most successful public law teams in Austria. Many of the most controversial and innovative administrative proceedings of the last decade have been handled by E+H. We are at the forefront of public law in Austria, often setting precedents. We represent both companies and local authorities.

The Public Law practice group specializes in commercial, planning, pharmaceutical, telecommunications, and data protection law. Our experts also have extensive experience working with hospital facilities. 

Our Public Law experts often combine forces with our Corporate + M&A, Finance, Real Estate, and Public Procurement practice groups, especially when dealing with companies in the energy sector (e.g. on wind power projects).

We provide ongoing support to the Corporate + M&A practice group in complex transactions with regard to due diligence and permits needed for the projects. Our team has broad industry knowledge.
