I am Lukas, an Austrian based venture capital lawyer. Others call me the one who (actually) reads the contracts. I am your lawyer, your sparring partner, your external advisor.
I enjoy working with founders, investment managers and executives on all matters relating to venture capital, private equity, corporate / commercial law and M&A. Over the past 7 years, I have advised funds, startups, growth companies as well as established market players on transactional and corporate law topics. During this time, I have worked on 130+ VC financing rounds, more than 30 M&A transactions, and about a dozen shareholder disputes.
After completing my Master’s degree in Business Law at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, I worked in the corporate/M&A team of Wolf Theiss for 5 years, followed by another 1.5 years as Legal Counsel at Speedinvest. As a tech-savvy lawyer, I am on constant lookout for new legal tech tools and enjoy developing new approaches to improve efficiency and internal processes in my firm.
