Patrick Kainz wishes you all the best in your job search!
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).

I dedicate time 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.

I have nothing but the highest praises for Patrick Kainz. After encountering difficulties with my visa application, I was steered in his direction for help. I was scared and embarrassed about my situation, and harbored an irrational unease regarding lawyers, but after the initial consultation with Patrick, I knew I was in capable hands. I highly appreciated his kind, honest, clear communication, which made me feel safe and empowered in my choice (and allowed me to actually sleep at night). His representation resulted in an outcome that was better than I had even hoped for at the beginning, and I am extremely grateful!

I cannot express enough gratitude for the outstanding legal services provided by Mr. Kainz. On not one, but two occasions, he navigated the complexities of visa acquisition and renewal with unparalleled expertise. The entire process was remarkably smooth, every step was handled promptly and efficiently. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Kainz to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you for your great support again!
