Banking law, capital market law, financing

We live in economically difficult times. The complexity of the current capital market structure calls for reliable, far-sighted decision-making.

Whether they relate to credit, investments or other forms of financing, we help you to make those decisions, showing that we are pioneers as well as companions. Here at hba, legal expertise and in-depth understanding of economic principles go hand in hand, bringing benefits to all.

We advise both lenders and borrowers on arranging agreements and structuring finance. We support clients focusing on acquisitions and project finance with the same level of commitment – starting by choosing the right instrument and structure, through to conducting contract negotiations and drafting, to final syndication. We provide advice on securing collateral and on the restructuring and rescheduling of finances.

Another core area of our expertise is regulation and supervision. We bring our considerable knowledge to bear on all aspects of banking law.

We give legal assistance to financial institutions on the issue and sale of securities in Austria. We also assist with the structuring of funds, the issuance of prospectuses and other aspects of supervision of securities and capital market law. Our clients’ activities are highly secure and independently audited.
