Mag. Patrick Onyemaechi Kainz, LL.M. (NYU/NUS)

Already at the beginning of my career I realized that a lawyer can only call himself ‘internationally active’ if he has also experienced life and work culture in other regions of the world. For this reason I have studied and practiced law in as many countries as possible. In addition to Vienna, the stops in my career were: Mexico City, Nijmegen (Netherlands), Singapore and New York City (USA).

In addition, I dedicate myself to my ongoing further education in the field of new media. I am enthusiastic about legal tech and blockchain/distributed ledger technologies. I constantly explore how I can offer my clients additional added value by employing these technologies. In addition, I regularly publish articles and videos in which I deal with current legal problems.

I will now use all the experience I have gained so far in my consultation for you.
