DORDA strengthens its legal practices in the areas of corporate M&A, banking and capital markets, dispute resolution and insurance litigation by promoting three new senior associates. Clemens Burian (corporate law, capital markets law, takeover law) and Alexander Karl (commercial & insurance litigation, arbitration) were recently admitted to the bar. Oliver Thurin (Corporate/M&A, Corporate Law, Capital Markets) just joined DORDA at the beginning of August.

"We are happy about the thriving careers of our lawyers. All of them are top experts in their field, highly talented and dedicated professionals." says Managing Partner Axel Anderl. "We always try our best to enhance our people’s careers."  He adds: "Our focus is of course on the long-term development, which we support in various ways; certainly with excellent technical training but also by broadening their perspectives with post graduate studies abroad or internships with international law firms."

Clemens Burian (32) has been with DORDA for five years and was admitted to the bar in July 2019. An expert in corporate and capital markets law, Clemens Burian specialises in stock-listed companies. He was part of the DORDA team advising BAWAG Group on the largest IPO to date on the Vienna Stock Exchange. His main practice areas include stock exchange law (market abuse law, prospectus law) and takeover law. He advises clients on transactions on the capital market (initial public offerings, capital increases, takeover procedures and delistings) and off the capital market (reorganisations). In addition, he advises clients in general corporate law matters, such as the foundation of companies and the preparation of general meetings. The experienced and tech-savvy business lawyer completed his legal education at the Vienna University of Economics and Business and has a school degree in electrical engineering and information technology.

Alexander Karl (31) has been a member of the dispute resolution team at DORDA since the beginning of his legal career.
