'' Schmelz lawfirm | Dorian Schmelz '' ''

Mag. Dorian Schmelz // attorney at law


After working for Austria’s leading commercial law firms for over a decade, I decided to become self-employed. This was so I could improve some things and certainly do many things differently: from dusty structures right into the 21st century.

Looking across the pond of jurisprudence I focus my interest on the opportunities and pitfalls of negotiation procedures. Aside from that, I am a real cosmopolitan and like to show my son the world, listen to music whenever possible and spend free evenings at concerts.
