50 Years BLS Attorneys at Law

In 2024, we at BLS have a remarkable success story to look back on as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. The law firm was founded in 1974 by Dr Hellmuth Boller and Dr Günter Langhammer. Dr Wolfgang Schubert became a partner in 1994. The name BLS goes back to these three partners.

Over the years, the law firm in the heart of Vienna's city center flourished. Satisfied clients ensured a consistently high level of utilization. The company grew steadily and more partners came on board. The proven office location in Kärntner Straße in Vienna was continuously expanded.

By joining an international network of lawyers in 1999, we took a major step towards internationalisation. We have been a member of Pangea Net since 2023 and now have an even broader range of partner law firms abroad. We have thus further increased our international clout.

Today, BLS is one of the leading medium-sized commercial law firms in Austria. We have been a reliable partner to our clients since the first day. Numerous well-known companies rely on the expertise of our law firm. We intend to maintain this course over the next half century. Our driving force is the passion for success.
