Start-ups and Contract Law
As part of our Legal Angel programme, we support founders and start-ups in all phases of company development. As a direct point of contact, we aim to provide rapid assistance and keep founders free from legal issues so that they can concentrate on their core tasks.
We have been supporting Memocorby Systems GmbH with all of their legal issues for more than five years now.
We manage everything from shareholder and financing issues to investor rounds. We have drawn up contract documentation, such as general terms and conditions, co-operation agreements and sales and distribution agreements. In the event of legal disputes, we provide both advice and representation.
We also care very much about sustainable business development.
Mostly AI is a very successful start-up in the field of transforming complex or sensitive original data into synthetic, privacy-compliant data copies. Following a seed round in 2018, we successfully supported a Series-A financing round of EUR 5 million for the company.
During this financing round, the corresponding comprehensive documentation, investment agreement and shareholders’ agreement, as well as all the accompanying documentation, had to be prepared within a short period of time and co-ordinated with the various investors and previous shareholders. Our years of experience in the field of start-ups and financing rounds and our professional approach make it possible for us to take all the necessary legal steps that ensure such financing rounds are implemented efficiently – and within the required timetable.

Public Commercial Law and Staid Aid
The legal restructuring of the Kunsthaus Graz art museum was designed and implemented in a five-phase plan on behalf of the Austrian State of Styria together with the City of Graz and in co-operation with the management of Universalmuseum Joanneum.
The option of repaying open lease financing early was taken as an opportunity to disentangle the historically complex legal situation and create a new structure for it.
All stakeholders pursued the common goal constructively and in a solution-oriented manner, which is why the legal challenges were all well managed. Dr. Martin Wiedenbauer: “It was very exciting to combine the numerous issues into a future-oriented overall concept… structure for a positive future of the Universalmuseum Joanneum and the Kunsthaus Graz…”
