Former Vavrovsky Heine Marth Attorney at Law Peter Tutsch has joined Fieldfisher as the fifth Partner in its new Vienna office, on July 3, 2023.
The Vienna office of Fieldfisher had opened just a month earlier, with former SCWP Schindhelm Partners and by integrating Meissner & Passin (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on June 2, 2023).
A corporate finance and restructuring specialist with a background in engineering, Tutsch has a particular focus on technology businesses, including fintech and venture capital firms. Before joining Fieldfisher, he spent two and a half years with Vavrovsky Heine Marth. Earlier, he spent almost two years in-house with Siemens as a Legal Counsel. Before that, he spent another two with BPV Huegel, between 2017 and 2019, and two and a half with Eustacchio Schaar. He started his career with Fiebinger Polak & Partner in 2013 as a Paralegal. Tutsch currently also serves as the Chief Legal Officer of CONDA Crowdinvesting.
"I am delighted to welcome Peter to Fieldfisher Austria so soon after opening our new office," Fieldfisher Austria Managing Partner Thomas Ruhm commented. "Peter's experience in corporate finance, restructuring, and insolvency and his ambitions to further build his practice as part of a respected international law firm perfectly align with our team's entrepreneurial spirit and objectives."
"Joining Fieldfisher Austria is an excellent opportunity to add my skills and experience to a highly respected team working under an internationally recognized brand name," Tutsch added. "I am confident that by cooperating with Thomas and my other colleagues at Fieldfisher Austria we can grow the office's client base and offer market-leading expertise in fields in which there is significant demand."
