Before joining KNOETZL, Katrin practiced law in a senior capacity with a large, multinational law firm covering the CEE and SEE for eight years, both as a corporate and banking lawyer and, then, in the last five years as a litigator, focussing predominantly upon disputed matters in the substantive law range of European corporate and international finance and in the life science industry.
Katrin’s professional background – including her extensive experience as a transaction lawyer in international corporate/M&A and finance transactions – has enriched her own dispute resolution practice at KNOETZL.
Her primary focus continues to be on corporate litigation and arbitration and includes, in particular, all forms of shareholder disputes, manager liability and disputed M&A transactions. She regularly represents and advises mainly multinational clients from a variety of industries. Katrin has been particularly active in advocating on behalf of the life sciences, including Austrian and multinational pharmaceuticals. She is also experienced in complex, disputed matters in advertising and investment banking.
Katrin is Co-Chair of the International Life Sciences and Health Law Committee of the International Section of the American Bar Association (“ABA SIL”) as well as member of the Steering Committee of the ABA SIL International Litigation Committee and member of the Vienna Chapter of the ABA SIL.
