Bestes Beispiel ist hier die Vertretung von drei ehemaligen Aufsichtsräten der Kommunalkredit in einem Organhaftungsverfahren, das derzeit den OGH beschäftigt, bei dem neben den Bank- und Finanzrechtlern auch die Konfliktlösungspraxis involviert ist. Sehr angesehen ist die Kanzlei im Markt für ihre Arbeit im VC-Segment, darunter zu Venture-Debt-Transaktionen. Nicht minder visible agiert die Kanzlei in Person von Dr. Christoph Wildmoser an der Seite von Fonds, Banken und Unternehmen im Rahmen von klassischen Finanzierungen. Weiters ist HK auch für ihr kapitalmarktrechtliches Know-how bekannt, auf das nicht zuletzt die Uniqa regelmäßig vertrat, insbesondere in Sachen Strabag/Rasperia.

Konfliktlösung

Die Konfliktlösungspraxis um Dr. Stephan Lenzhofer zeigt sich als visible Akteurin vor allem in Verfahren vor staatlichen Gerichten. Nicht selten ficht Herbst Kinsky die Interessen ihrer Mandanten durch alle Instanzen hinweg bis zu den Höchstgerichten aus. Beispielhaft ist hier die Vertretung der GIS in einem Verfahren um die Rückzahlung der Umsatz- bzw. Mehwertsteuer aus dem Programmentgelt, welches inzwischen den EuGH beschäftigt. Drei ehemaligen Aufsichtsräten einer notverstaatlichten Bank steht die Kanzlei nun in einem Revisionsverfahren vor dem OGH zur Seite. In derartig gelagerten Fällen profitiert die Kanzlei nicht zuletzt vom Know-how von Verfassungsrichter und Namenspartner Dr. Christoph Herbst. Das Engagement der Kanzlei für ihre Mandanten reicht weit über die Grenzen Österreichs hinaus. So steht Lenzhofer beispielsweise einem IT-Dienstleister bei einer Forderungseintreibung einschließlich Exekution in Singapur bei. Während Herbst regelmäßig in bankrechtlichen Causen in Erscheinung tritt, legt Partnerin Dr. Sonja Hebenstreit einen Schwerpunkt auf die Beratung von Unternehmen aus der Pharmabranche. Personell verbreiterte sich die Kanzlei auf Anwärterebene durch den Einstieg einer Berufsanfängerin.

Die JUVE-Redaktion über Herbst Kinsky:

Am Markt genießt HK ein äußerst hohes Ansehen für ihr Engagement im Venture-Capital-Kontext, wo ein Wettbewerber die Einheit als "stärkste in diesem Segment" bezeichnet. Dies spiegelt nicht zuletzt die große Zahl an Finanzierungsrunden wider, in denen HK ihre Mandanten begleitet. Hier stehen Teams der Einheit sowohl auf Investoren- als auch auf Unternehmensseite. Während Wettbewerber unter anderem die hohe Schlagzahl an Transaktionen hervorheben, die die Praxis bewältigt, zeigen sich Mandanten vom "verlässlichen und lösungsorientierten" Ansatz mehr als zufrieden. Zuletzt zeigte sich die Praxis unter anderem an der Seite klassischer Strategen wie Viessmann. Eine Leuchtturmcausa stellte die Beratung der Uniqa zu der Neugestaltung des Syndikatsvertrags mit der Haselsteiner Gruppe bei Strabag und ein damit verbundenes öffentliches Pflichtangebot dar. Hier übernahm ein Tandem bestehend aus Dr. Philipp Kinsky und Dr. Wolfgang Schwackhöfer die Federführung. Komplettiert wird das Beratungsangebot durch das breite Know-how zu gesellschaftsrechtlichen Themen wie Umstrukturierungen oder Spaltungen. Nicht selten treten die Beraterinnen und Berater auch bei kapitalmarktnahen Causen in Erscheinung, wie HVen-Beratung oder Kapitalmaßnahmen. Weiters gehört Kinsky zum kleinen Kreis der Anwälte, die maßgeblich im Rahmen des Gesetzgebungsverfahren für die flexible Kapitalgesellschaft mitwirken. Mit einer Niederlassung in Linz, für die ein Associate der Kanzlei die Verantwortung übernimmt, positioniert sich die Kanzlei nun wieder als Vor-Ort-Beraterin für bereits bestehende oberösterreichische Mandanten und schafft zudem eine Basis, um neue Kontakte zu lokalen Unternehmen zu knüpfen.

Herbst Kinsky erneut unter den führenden Wirtschaftskanzleien Österreichs

Auszug aus dem Ranking:

Bewertung:
Die Corporate-/M&A Praxis ist insbesondere für ihre Beratung von Gründern und Venture-Capital-Investoren anerkannt. Entsprechend eng ist die Verbindung zur Kapitalmarktpraxis der Kanzlei. Ein Highlight war 2022 die Beratung der 300-Mio-Euro-Finanzierung für den Online-Nachhilfeanbieter GoStudent. Typischerweise berät das ebenso große wie erfahrene Team Start-ups von der Gründung bis zum Exit, wie auch das Biotech-Unternehmen PhagoMed, das sich der deutsche Impfstoffentwickler BioNTech einverleibte. Zuletzt stieg nicht nur die Zahl solcher Transaktionen, sondern auch deren Volumen. Zudem setzten neben KMUs zunehmend größere Unternehmen auf die Beratung der Kanzlei, so war Dr. Christoph Wildmoser etwa beim Kauf der Promedico erstmals für Nestlé im Einsatz. Sein Team hatte den Konzern bei einer früheren Transaktion als Berater der Gegenseite überzeugt. Im Gesellschaftsrecht setzten zahlreiche börsennotierte Unternehmen wie ams, Apeiron und Biogena für ihre Hauptversammlungen und aufsichtsratsrechtlichen Agenden auf HK. Nach den Abgängen im vergangenen Jahr stockt die Praxis ihre Associate-Riege erheblich auf. Zudem zeigt sie ihren Nachwuchskräften Perspektiven auf, wie jüngst die Ernennung von Johannes Frank zum Equity-Partner zeigte.

"Die eher für ihren Venture-Capital-Schwerpunkt bekannte Praxis sorgte zuletzt mit großen (Re-) Finanzierungen für Aufsehen. Für AMS stand das Finanzierungsteam im Zuge der OSRAM-Übernahme an der Seite von Linklaters, um den enormen Finanzbedarf seiner Stammmandantin rechtlich zu sichern. Zudem mussten einige Finanzierungen neu strukturiert werden, etwa für Esim Chemicals oder Ares Management. In der kapitalmarktrechtlichen Beratung gewinnt indes Mag. Johannes Frank dank attraktiver Mandate deutlich an Präsenz. Unter anderem brachte ein von ihm geführtes Team die Salzburger Nahrungsergänzungsfirma Biogena an den Direct Market an die Wiener Börse. Zuvor hatte Biogena, ebenfalls unter seiner Ägide, vom Eigenkapital-Crowdinvesting für AGen Gebrauch gemacht, einer neuen Finanzierungsstruktur, auf die auch andere Start-up-Mandanten der Praxis nun setzen.

Auf Investorenseite verbuchten die Anwälte ebenfalls einen Erfolg: Die von ihnen begleitete Finanzierungsrunde des auf akademische Ausgründungen spezialisierten VC-Fonds IST Cube brachte unter anderem durch den Einstieg des Europäischen Investmentfonds 40 Millionen Euro zusammen."

“Die Kanzlei, die vor allem für die Beratung von Venture-Capital-Fonds und zu alternativen Finanzierungen steht, sorgte zu Beginn des vergangenen Jahres mit dem Börsegang von Marinomed für Aufmerksamkeit. Mit der Übernahme von Osram, bei der Herbst Kinsky-Stammmandantin AMS (Dr. Phillip Dubsky) zu allen Equity-and-Debt Finance-Aspekten der Akquisitionsfinanzierung beriet, gibt das Jahr überaus erfolgreich weiter. Hier arbeitete die Kanzlei an der Seite von Linklaters, und auch durch andere grenzüberschreitende Mandate – wie beispielsweise die Finanzierungsberatung von PGGM Rail beim beabsichtigen Kauf der ELL-Gruppe von KKR – werden die Beziehungen zu international Kanzleien zusehends enger. Deren Verweisgeschäft, gepaart mit einer erhöhten Marktwahrnehmung, brachte eine Reihe neuer Mandanten mit sich – sowohl auf Banken- als auch Unternehmensseite. Im Finanzierungsbereich zog zuletzt die Beratung zu Eisenbahn- und Flugzeugfinanzierungen an. So beriet Dr. Christoph Wildmoser erstmals die KfW zur Finanzierung von 15 Lokomotiven und die Westbahn zum Tausch ihrer gesamten Triebzugflotte. Crowdplattformen, Fonds und Fintechs finden in Dr. Philipp Kinsky einen kompetenten Ansprechpartner insbesondere für ihre regulatorischen Fragen.

Bank- und Finanzrecht und Kapitalmarkt

“Wohl kaum eine andere österreichische Kapitalmarktpraxis war in den vergangenen zwölf Monaten so intensiv mit Börsegängen beschäftigt. Neben mehreren beabsichtigten IPOs und ICOs begleitete das Team um Dr. Philipp Kinsky Anfang 2019 an der Seite von Clifford Chance das Biotech-Unternehmen Marinomed bei seinem Gang auf das Wiener Parkett. Auch das regulatorische Know-how des anerkannten Kapitalmarktpartners waren gefragter als zuvor, was sich unter anderem in der Beratung mehrerer Fintechs zu neuen Produkten zeigte.
Im Bank- und Finanzrecht gelang es der Praxis, ihr Netzwerk zu internationalen Kanzleien enger zu knüpfen und an der Seite von Clifford Chance, Sidley Austin oder Latham & Watkins neue Mandanten zu gewinnen. So beriet sie zahlreiche Private-Equity-Unternehemen, etwa Sun Capital oder Blackrock, erstmals bei Akquisitionsfinanzierungen.
In ihrem Kernbereich, der Start-up-Finanzierung, bei der sie sowohl die jungen Unternehmen als auch einsteigende Fonds berät, gilt die Kanzlei einigen Marktteilnehmern inzwischen als die „Nummer Eins“. „Sie ist bei allen einschlägigen Venture-Capital-Transaktionen dabei“, meint ein Wettbewerber. Dem Zuwachs in beiden Segmenten trug die Kanzlei mit der Ernennung von Dr. Philipp Baubin zum Equity Partner Rechnung.”
