Feedback received for Dr Wolfgang Babeck and his team ( mostly via Martindale Hubble)
We are the legal department of a significant European airline. During a major restructuring and sale 2017/2018, Wolfgang Babeck managed our Australian affairs, both as corporate agent and as solicitor. His commercially astute, witty and utmost practical advice in dealings with the Australian regulator ASIC has resulted in significant cost and time savings for our company for which we are most grateful.
Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. Babeck
Endlich konnte mir jemand eins zu eins die praktischen Folgen der Unterschiede zwischen Civil und Common Law aufzeigen – der Grund, weshalb ich hier bin. Und dies in weniger als 2 Stunden. Herzlichen Dank dafür.
Mit freundlichen, kollegialen Grüssen

I am the Australasian GM of a market leading global food manufacturer. We were involved in an important and complex litigation at the Federal Court which involved distribution law, IP law, trade practices and passing off. Wolfgang Babeck and his team greatly guided us through the case. His ability to balance comprehensive legal strategy with commercial realities were key to delivering our business the best possible solution. We were very happy with the result achieved.

I am the managing director of an international life sciences fund. Dr. Wolfgang Babeck has been advising the fund as well as its directors and non-executive directors for more than five years. He has assisted us in over a dozen first and second instance court proceedings as well as in negotiations in the area of banking and finance. He is a lateral thinker with attention to details and can be highly recommended.

In my capacity as manager projects and legal I have coordinated various activities for a large renewable energy company. We set up one of the largest wind farms worldwide and invested substantially into PV in Australia. Wolfgang and his team accompanied us from day one. The contacts and the industry knowledge in the renewable space have been extremely helpful. Wolfgang even identified a target, which we then acquired and introduced us to a large investor which became our joint venture partner.

This includes acquisitions, complex restructurings, insolvencies, capital raisings and rights issues, negotiations with management, banks and shareholders. Wolfgang thinks commercially, is a highly skilled negotiator and an excellent operator.

We operate 100 childcare centres and have recently expanded into Australia. The childcare centres we bought were auctioned off by an administrator. During the entire bidding process we were supported by Wolfgang and his team. This included strategic preparation, due diligence and negotiations with the seller as well as the entire documentation for the licence to operate. We experienced not only top performance but also outstanding service and remarkable friendliness of the entire team.

In Australia we are tendering for a large transport/infrastructure project. The assistance that Wolfgang Babeck has provided was truly exceptional. Apart from assisting with legal aspects of the tender process, Wolfgang has aligned us with the right people and organisations. He opened doors to the head of infrastructure of a major Australian bank who intends to participate in our bidding process. This is what I call great assistance if you are dealing in a foreign jurisdiction.
