We are thrilled to receive the superior global ranking bestowed in dispute resolution in the latest edition of Chambers & Partners Global, which recognizes the firm’s arbitration and litigation practices in Band 1, as well bestowing distinguished recognition to Bettina Knoetzl (Litigation), Florian Haugeneder and Patrizia Netal (Arbitration), among all practitioners for their dispute resolution prowess.

Chambers describes KNOETZL as “a high-class boutique offering extensive expertise in local and cross-border litigation, as well as international arbitration. The team is active across a range of industries including construction, life sciences, IT and automotive. The practice additionally boasts expertise in regulated sectors such as energy, banking and gambling. The firm regularly advises clients on high-profile share purchase, data protection and post-M&A disputes, as well as breach of trust and liability cases”.

Clients, through Chambers, describe our lawyers as “extremely precise”, with a “deep understanding of issues and possible tactics”, and as going “the extra mile to ensure they understand”. We would like to thank our valued clients for their trust and recommendation – nothing makes us happier than delivering optimal results to them –, as well as to share credit with our valued and deep team for their dedication and efforts.

Bettina Knoetzl, leading practitioner in Litigation, is described as a “top lawyer in the dispute resolution space”, noting that she is “commended for her experience advising clients on a range of big-ticket litigation mandates” and “one of the best lawyers in court”. Clients laud her for being “a strategic thinker”, “fast and flexible, as well as solution-oriented”. “One of Bettina’s biggest strengths is, aside from her command of Austrian law, constantly evaluating and re-evaluating what the client’s needs are and if they are being met in the most efficient and effective manner.”

Florian Haugeneder, well recognized as a leading practitioner in arbitration and the co-head of the international arbitration practice at KNOETZL, is identified by Chambers as “a strong lawyer with excellent experience in arbitration matters”. Clients recognize his “strong logical thinking and a good ability to communicate the logic even in tricky situations”, being “always really prepared and thought-through”. Others note that “he is the guy you would go to if you want to resolve a conflict, even out of court”, and he “is an excellent counsel and arbitrator”.

Patrizia Netal, co-head of the international arbitration practice, is singled out for “regularly advising on arbitration pertaining to damages claims and contractual disputes”. Clients know what her colleagues do: that she is a “sharp lawyer”, “very focused on the matter, [that she] communicates clearly and has extended knowledge of arbitration proceedings”.
