Immigration & Nationality

As the only Austrian law firm with a strong focus on the handling of settlement and citizenship law mandates, we support multinational companies, their employees and selected private clients in all legal matters related to the establishment of a residence in Austria.

Our practice group with its own family office develops tailor-made immigration solutions in German, English and Russian. However, we do not simply leave it at the filing of applications, but provide you with comprehensive support from day one in order to minimize the stress that comes with moving here.
