Rautner Attorneys-at-law announced that banking and capital markets lawyer Walter Gapp has joined the law firm as Partner on July 1, 2016. Gapp joins from Schoenherr, where he has been a Partner since 2011.
Before joining Schoenherr Gapp, who specializes in banking regulatory work and debt capital markets, is a former legal and policy expert of the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA).
Rautner Managing Partner Uwe Rautner believes that establishing a strong banking regulatory practice is an excellent way to broaden the range of legal services offered to new and existing clients. “We are very pleased to have been able to add a very well-known practitioner in financial regulation to our firm.”
According to Gapp: “The developments taking place in the fields of banking and securities regulation will continue to challenge our clients and therefore our firm in the coming years. We will be required to make use of our expertise gathered from the regulated world in order to support alternative financing and digitisation initiatives. Many things are unfolding very quickly at the moment.”
