About.

Tl;dr
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.

My systematic and pragmatic approach is complemented by my passion for creative activities. I am a guitarist, photographer, passionate barista and enjoy regular boulder / yoga sessions.
