My aim is your success!

It is not your aim to win a process …
… but e.g. to obtain your money or another object, or to avoid having to pay a sum or being deprived of something. What is a court verdict good for you if it is ruled too late, or if it does not help you to obtain your money? Hence, I avoid unnecessary costs once I have assumed your mandate, and check constantly whether a strategy other than the chosen one doesn`t ´lead to the desired aim more quickly. For example, court proceedings need not always be started, and even once initiated, a court proceeding doesn`t always have to be brought to an end, provided that the other side can already be persuaded to give in (in the main) before. It could from time to time be cheaper and more useful for you to solve a legal dispute by settlement, and sometimes switching on administrative authorities, e.g. district or local authorities, or initiating other kind of proceedings, e.g. criminal or insolvency proceedings, shows to be more advisable than to proceed through a lawsuit in court.

I consider it my task to satisfy you …
Hence, I seek to identify your very wishes and needs, since only thereby the “best strategy” can be found for you . If a solution is possible, I draft the “securest path” to achieve it. May be I can always present other possible ways that might be of interest to you. Anyhow, I point out the increased risk of such “alternatives”.

*I tell you everything about your risk before you yourself decide … *
To my mind, it has to be cleared up already at the first meeting whether the commissioning of a lawyer is reasonable. Therefore, at once at the beginning I inform you about the success risk and calculate/estimate the costs which might most likely arise from my operating. It is up to your free decision whether you then take the path which I have suggested. I prefer it if you do without me instead of regretting afterwards that you have engaged me, in case the hoped-for success fails to appear despite the fact that costs have arisen. But if you decide yourself for me, I fully commit myself to follow up your aims through competence and creativity, in order to achieve the utmost success for you. Of course you can change a chosen strategy later on at any time. For your own safety, I am then obliged to instruct you about the consequences and risks that result from complying with your wishes. If the other way round I consider it necessary to shift the strategy, I recommend to you the changes of strategy that I think are needed, and explain the reasons for it. Finally, it`s therefore always you who decides – this I consider the fair way of doing it.

Open to something new and internationality …
Not only the law, but also communication aids and office infrastructure are subject to an on-going progress. In every regard, I remain up to date in order to be able to look after you in the best possible way and at the newest state. Due to my first-class foreign language skills, practice of law in English and French is as familiar to me as legal activity in cross-border cases.

In that context, I like to arrange an appropriate assistance for you through some fellow lawyer abroad. To ensure the best possible execution of your mandates in regard of tax and business aspects, I stay in contact with the auditors Mag. Alexander Kessler, Bettina Maihart und Beate Böckle in order to exchange professional knowledge.
