Johannes Juranek has been appointed Managing Partner of CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz and will assume the role at the start of the firm's financial year on February 1, 2019.

Juranek will be taking over from Peter Huber, who has served as Managing Partner of CMS in Austria for the past 12 years. "Our firm has experienced exceptional growth since 2007 and the development of our CEE business has contributed to CMS becoming the third largest law firm in the world," stated Huber in a CMS press release. "I am proud to have been able to lead our firm through a period marked by such expansion."

As Managing Partner, Juranek explains that he is keen to remain true to the successful ways of the past but at the same time will take on new challenges: "We aim to strengthen our client relationships over the coming years even more by offering interdisciplinary, industry-specific services," he said. "As one of the leading corporate law firms, we are also aware of the importance of overcoming the challenges of digitization both at clients and within the legal industry. We must remain open to change in all respects, particularly with regard to AI." 

Juranek has been partner at CMS since 2008 following the merger that year between the law firm Dallmann & Juranek, which he had co-founded, and CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz. He specializes in the fields of technology and data protection law. According to CMS, he "has extensive experience in dealing with complex legal cases and will continue to advise his Austrian and international clients on the implementation of the new General Data Protection Regulation and to represent them in court and in arbitration proceedings. His clients include technology, software, and industrial companies as well as banks."

According to CMS, "after twelve years as managing partner, Peter Huber will now be able to devote himself fully to managing and developing CMS's corporate transactions and M&A practice, which is one of the most successful teams in the industry and is regularly advising on a wide range of complex international transactions."
