Former Weber & Co Partner Christoph Moser will re-join Schoenherr at the beginning of 2021.
Moser, who will return as an equity partner, worked at Schoenherr from 2010 to 2012, before moving to Baker & McKenzie. In 2014 he moved to Weber & Co. He obtained his Master’s degree at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz in 2004.
"Schoenherr is well known for, among others, its key capital markets team in Austria," declared Schoenherr Partner Ursula Rath. "With Christoph Moser and his expertise, we can expand our competence in this segment of the market. I am very much looking forward to working with him.”
"With Christoph Moser, we add an experienced capital markets law expert with a strong market presence to our firm," added Schoenherr Managing Partner Michael Lagler. "A good part of his initial legal career began at Schoenherr, and I am particularly pleased that he is returning. With this new addition to our practice, we are also initiating a generation shift in Austrian capital markets law. Despite their comparatively young age, both Ursula Rath and Christoph Moser are renowned experts in their fields. Combining their expertise at Schoenherr will strengthen our market position tremendously."
"Working at Schoenherr was an important starting point in my legal career," said Moser. "Since then I have been able to successfully position myself as a specialist in equity capital markets and debt capital markets. I look forward to being part of this outstanding law firm again and further expanding the capital markets practice together with Ursula Rath and the team."
News of Moser’s move follows shortly after the news that former Haslinger/Nagele Partner Michael Magerl will be joining Schoenherr in Linz as office Managing Partner on September 1, 2020 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on August 17, 2020).
