Friedrich Jergitsch is managing partner of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer’s Vienna office, heading the local finance practice group. He has been a partner since 2003 and specialises in banking and finance – from raising new capital to restructuring and regulatory issues. In addition, he carries out structured finance and derivative work and advises banks on legislative changes. He also acts as adviser to creditors on insolvency matters.
His mix of skills – banking, structured finance, regulatory law and insolvency law – is unusual and enables Friedrich to resolve cases where questions in these areas come together. He describes himself as ‘solution-driven’, but he is careful to make sure his advice is clear and that he explains difficult legal concepts in easy-to-understand terms.
He works in the finance group of the Vienna office, which he believes comprises the best legal expertise and the most dedicated team in its field in Austria.
