Supported by his wide experience gained as legal counsel of industrial companies and based on his language knowledge and international contacts, Dr. Simonfay established the Law Firm in Vienna in 1990 under the name Simonfay & Partners in order to assist and represent enterprises in international affairs.
The Law Firm was established at the time of the political renewal and reforms in Eastern European countries. Due to the personal relationships of Mr. Simonfay the staff of the Firm focused as counsel at the beginning primarily on the investments in Hungary and in Slovakia. Meanwhile also specified business contacts have been established with other Central and Eastern European countries and institutions what developed the clientele of the Law Firm quickly.
The partner Mag. Ulrich Salburg worked for several years as a lawyer in Lithuania, therefore we have had the possibility to represent foreign investors in Lithuania, respectively Lithuanian citizens and companies in Austria and in other EU states. Since 2002 the Viennese Office of our Law Firm has been recognized as Honorary Consulate of Lithuania and Mag. Salburg as trusted advocate of the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania.
MMag. Michael Krenn has been working for our Firm since 2007, as an attorney since 2011.
Based on the partnership with the Lithuanian lawyer Ramune Duleviciene, we also run a law office in Vilnius.
Besides our professional Eastern European competency and expertise on commercial law matters, our firm represents clients from Austria, Hungary, and Lithuania in the legal field of these countries as well as of the European Union, in civil and criminal suits such as in administrative procedures.
In the last twenty years we have solved difficult legal problems and settled legal disputes in the representation and on behalf of significant Austrian companies cooperating with our clients on an international level.
Additional and obvious advantage is the multilingualism of our staff. Mr. Simonfay is acknowledged as court interpreter of Hungarian, English and French, and all of the members of our team have excellent knowledge of German and English. We can also offer administrative and legal services in Hungarian and in French.
Our office in Vienna is located in the centre of the City, in the immediate vicinity of the Ministry of Justice, Court of Justice and right behind the National Theatre (Volkstheater).
