Rechtsanwalt | Attorney at law


Profile Thomas Kienbauer


I always knew that I wanted to become a lawyer and fend for the rights of my clients. Nonetheless, I first set out into the world to work in the entertainment, media and IT industries in New York and Munich for a few years. At that time my focus and my interest were already directed at the legal aspects of my projects as well as the drafting of contracts and licensing agreements. In 2007 I therefore returned to Vienna to follow my calling, taking with me new knowledge, valuable experience and perfect English skills.

During my time at various renowned Viennese law firms I was able to collaborate with and learn from experienced colleagues, extend my network and deepen my expertise. However, one thing was always missing: the certainty that I would be able to be a long-term partner to my clients, to take an integrated approach and attend to all of their concerns in any given matter. I realized that this would only be possible if I went into business for myself, and so the next step was clear.
