Schoenherr has advised the UniCredit Group on its establishment of two exclusive strategic partnerships with Allianz and Generali for the distribution of insurance products for individuals and small businesses in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Allianz was advised by Allen & Overy, and Generali was reportedly advised by Linklaters.
Schoenherr provided legal advice in all relevant CEE jurisdictions and overall project coordination in the CEE region (Molinari e Associati advised UniCredit Group on Italian law). The Schoenherr team was led by Partner Robert Bachner and reportedly included ten advisory teams in nine CEE jurisdictions.
Linklaters did not reply to our inquiries on the matter.
