Clemens Philipp Schindler is a founding partner of Schindler Attorneys. Before establishing the firm, he spent six years as a partner at Wolf Theiss, where he led some of the firm’s most prestigious transactions and headed its Brazil operations. Prior to that, he practised with Haarmann Hemmelrath in Munich and Vienna, and with Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz in New York. Mr Schindler’s practice focuses on corporate and tax advice in relation to public and private mergers and acquisitions (M&A), private equity and corporate reorganisations (such as mergers, spin-offs and migrations), most of which have a cross-border element. Mr Schindler is ranked by international legal directories such as Best Lawyers, Chambers Global, Chambers Europe, The Legal 500, IFLR1000 and Who’s Who Legal. The German legal directory JUVE singles him out as one of Austria’s top 20 corporate and M&A lawyers, and the Austrian business journal Trend named him among the country’s top 10 experts in both M&A and tax. Besides the listings for the Austrian market, both Chambers Global and Chambers Europe acknowledge his Brazilian expertise in a special ranking.
