LANSKY, GANZGER + partner (LGP) is a leading international law firm headquartered in Vienna. Through its offices and partner firms, the firm is represented throughout Greater Europe and worldwide. The firm has an especially strong presence throughout Central and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. In addition to its international offices in Vienna (Austria), Bratislava (Slovakia), Baku (Azerbaijan) and partner firms, Lansky, Ganzger & Partner has practice teams of lawyers in Vienna, qualified in many foreign jurisdictions, focussing on Russia and CIS, on Southeastern Europe, on Turkey and Azerbaijan, and on the USA.
LGP advises both private- and public-sector clients in all areas of private and public law. In addition to representing commercial clients, the firm has historic strength in the public and near-public sector, having carried out numerous mandates in the sectors of transportation (aviation, railroads etc.), energy, and communal services. LGP represents sovereign states in connection with issues of international public law, and such issues as bringing regulations into EU and other international standards compliance as well as private and public clients in international arbitration matters. The law firm provides counsel on privatizations, commercial transactions, public procurement, mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions, high tech and telecommunications, infrastructure, banking, project finance and capital market matters, environmental issues, energy law, and criminal law.
Since many years LGP has been active in some of the largest merger and acquisition transactions in Southeastern Europe. Being a full-service provider to foreign investors LGP helps clients pursue acquisition targets and structure new operations in Southeastern Europe enabling entry and access to the regional market. Unlike many international law firms that establish local regional offices, LGP is one of the few that prefers to associate with strong local partners who put their well-organized political and business contacts to pro-active use for clients in their countries. A recent example of the strategy: 2009 LGP has built an alliance of independent law firms covering the entire area of former Yugoslavia ("LGP Legal Solutions"). Based on this model the firm finds customized legal solutions for every case supported by an internationally experienced team in Vienna.
LGP is also a member of Euro-Defi/Juris-Defi, the European network of attorneys, auditors and accountants. Moreover, Gerald Ganzger and Stefan Schermaier are admitted to the Bar of Bratislava, Gabriel Lansky to the Bar of Bratislava, Budapest and Brussels, where he can lobby the European Union on behalf of clients' interests. Gabriel Lansky's publication on public funding in the European Union has set the standard for the Austrian subsidy practice. The firm offers legal counseling in Azeri, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Kazakh, Latvian, Rumanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Spanish, Turkish, Ukrainian.
