"Aerodynamics are for people who can't build engines"

Dr. Roland Gerlach, LL.M (LSE)

Roland Gerlach's specialization in employment law is due to the fact that employment law seminars were held at ski lodges during his studies, which made them considerably more attractive than other courses. The writing of an employment law dissertation consequently led to the partnership with Dr. Georg Grießer, the founding of Griesser|Gerlach|Gahleitner and later GERLACH Rechtsanwälte. His many years of experience are also valued internationally, with Chambers ranking him as a "standout practitioner" in Tier 1.

"Roland Gerlach is pragmatic, clear, experienced and willing to take risks."

"Roland Gerlach is a genius, unsurpassed in his field in Austria. He is learned and witty, a great orator in court and a fast thinker with a strong mind."
