Personal details


Dr Marie-Agnes Arlt, LL.M. (NYU) studied law in Vienna, Paris and New York as Fulbright scholar. She studied business mediation in Berlin.

Marie-Agnes Arlt started her legal career at the University of Vienna and also at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration as a member of the so-called START- project. In the course of this project she also conducted research at the Max Planck Institute in Hamburg. From 2004, she has been working for various law firms until she opened her own law firm – – and in 2016. Since 2007 Agnes is admitted to the Austrian bar.

The main focus of Marie-Agnes’ work is corporate dispute management – a term established by her – and follows from her long-standing corporate law expertise not only in court and arbitration proceedings but also in M&A transactions and general contract negotiations. As a trained business mediator she can work towards the solution of conflicts between and within companies as well as of legal and other disputes without threatening existing relationships. Marie-Agnes always considers the principles of business mediation also when assisting in strategic negotiations and in connection with establishing alliances within or between companies.
