￼￼￼￼STROHAL LEGAL GROUP, founded by Dr Theodor Strohal, is a law firm offering a highly personalized service to its clients. We acknowledge that our clients and their needs are unique and as such we provide an individual and dedicated approach to each business relationship. No matter whether we are working on a large or small case, we do not simply focus on making money, but on how to serve our client in the best possible manner.
We can advise you across all aspects of setting up your establishment in a new location, helping to develop the entire infrastructure of your new branch office. We can obtain all your residence visas plus work permits and assist you through the jungle of double-taxation treaties, nested privileges and international corporate and tax law. With our expertise in international taxation, we are able to advise intercontinental companies on even the most complex cases to achieve the most tax effective structure, often resulting in a combination of European, Middle Eastern and Far Eastern operations.
We have offices in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Myanmar, Singapore and Austria (headquarters: Vienna) which means our lawyers are well placed to serve as legal counsel throughout the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Europe. We are also the only law office in the region with independent and locally accredited lawyers, making us truly international in our expertise.
STROHAL LEGAL GROUP dates back to 1870 with its roots in Vienna, Austria. Emil Strohal was the original founder, a highly- skilled legal scholar who taught at the Universities of Graz, Leipzig and Göttingen. He was considered the founder of the Austrian Land Registry Law and his family has been active in the practice of law ever since that time.
Our current law office in Vienna was founded in 1979 by Dr Theodor Strohal and it has rapidly expanded to become one of the most reputable boutique law firms.
In 1994, we opened our Singapore office serving Southeast Asia and clients dealing with the ASEAN countries as well as China and Taiwan. We work in association with one of Singapore’s largest law firms, Hin Tat Augustine & Partners, to provide legal assistance in local law.
In 2005, we established our UAE office, putting us in the unique position of being the only international law firm north of Sharjah having close contact and experience with the Ras Al Khaimah Government. This emirate is currently enjoying the status of hosting one of the most rapidly emerging free zones in the Middle East at this time.
Recently, in 2010 we opened the doors to our office in Doha, in cooperation with the leading law firm in Qatar: Al Sulaiti Law Firm; and in 2012, we secured our expansion into Southeast Asia with the opening our newest chamber in Yangon, Myanmar, in cooperation with U Min Sein, among the country’s top lawyers.
Today. STROHAL LEGAL GROUP enjoys a well-established reputation across Europe, Southeast Asia and the Middle East / GCC region with a strong focus on international and cross-border business in addition to real estate work. We are fluent in German, English, Arabic, Russian, Spanish, Italian and French. Our staff also speaks Indonesian and Tagalog.
