Our Story

For more than 70 years, clients have trusted FRIEDERS TASSUL in business law matters. Founded by Dr. Hans Frieders, we have established ourselves during this time as one of the leading commercial law firms in the heart of Vienna. The expansion of our long-term team around Christoph Horvath and Christian Tassul through the appointment of Felix Augustus Kirkovits and Alexander Ritlop as additional partners marked a generational merger, through which the continuity of legal advice to our clients at the highest level is ensured.
