STADLER VÖLKEL Rechtsanwälte GmbH

Banking and Finance

We have extensive experience advising on a wide range of banking and financial matters, including cross-border financings, bond issuance programs and innovative financial products. We also have an in-depth understanding of the special requirements for the management of collateral for public covered bonds.

A specialty of our team is advising on financing real estate projects and granting loans internationally. We excel in navigating the intricate internal bank control processes that accompany such ventures. We also specialize in hot topics such as digitalization and the ever-stricter compliance regulations. However, we never lose sight of our core mission of making implementable and innovative proposals that offer clear, actionable answers.

We also advise on the intersection between banking law and insolvency law and are very familiar with the special requirements of insolvency law in this regard. Furthermore, we advise banks in contentious proceedings, helping our clients enforce their rights swiftly and assertively. We acknowledge, however, that a delicate touch can be necessary, particularly when working with supervisory authorities. In this area, our clients benefit from our strong connections to Austrian authorities and universities.

In the banking sector, consumer protection laws are immensely important. We have a great deal of experience in dealing with consumer protection requirements in credit agreements. We have drafted numerous contractual clauses that take into account the requirements of the relevant laws (HIKRG, VKrG, etc.) and meet the strict requirements of the OGH for transparent clauses. Specifically, we have experience with all documents that a bank needs in connection with the granting of loans. Our expertise extends to the collateralization of loans. In addition, our lawyers are frequently invited to speak at international committees and at universities.
