Dr Wolfgang Kinner


If you start a law firm, your goal is to be the first address in your professional discipline.

in memoriam Hans Kinner (1941–2014), September 2014

With this claim I have been practicing successfully as an independent lawyer in employment law at the current office location since 1 January 2015. International references and continual growth confirm this. With the decision to expand the law firm into an employment law boutique together with Ingrid Korenjak since 1 January 2020, the passion for employment law has multiplied. Combined expertise for our clients.

Wolfgang Kinner has been working in the field of employment law since 2005. He represents Austrian and international companies as well as organizations in questions with the Austrian and European labour law. Clients especially value his in-depth and practical understanding of HR Management, which he gained from working in a corporate HR department before starting his legal career as a lawyer.

His main areas of expertise are

Wolfgang Kinner also shares his knowledge in lectures and in-house seminars.
