What motivates me:
The sporting ambition of rising to each and every challenge and the conviction of being able to do so successfully.
Where would I be now if I had not become a lawyer:
…certainly much less of a know-it-all.
My three greatest passions:
Individual travel, sports and cookery.
„High competence, tightly organised, comes straight to the point, perfect negotiation skills, high operational readiness and 24/7 availability.”
„The team is highly professional, responsive and easy to deal with. Straight to the point communication.”

Philip Rosenauer betreute unsere Unternehmensgründung weit über das oft erwartete Mindestmaß hinaus, ging höchst professionell auf unsere oft eigenwilligen Fragen ein und war immer bereit die “extra Mile” für uns zu gehen! Danke dafür! Founder & Chief Changemaker

“Only when you exit, or as soon as the company generates profits, do you reap the fruits of well-thought-out tax planning. This requires understandable solutions and a reliable partner who lives at the same time and offers tailored structures for young entrepreneurs. This has proven itself in practice and, with timely planning of the structure from a tax and legal perspective, creates more time for you and your company.”
Phillip Andert MSc LL.B., Tax Consultant & Senior Consultant

“As the most active venture capital fund for Austrian tech start-ups, aws Gründerfonds relies on strong and professional legal advice. We rely on an entrepreneurial approach to participation and want to actively shape the Austrian startup landscape through further development and monetization of innovative technologies. We can only perform this function efficiently with a committed and experienced partner. Our portfolio companies know us as a responsible and founder-friendly investor and count on our proactive support. PHH Rechtsanwält:innen is a reliable partner for legal issues and a confident companion.”
“As a start-up, you are usually occupied with more important things than dealing with legal matters. PHH got to the point. Legally compliant solutions to our sensitive issues were offered to us on the silver platter, ready to use, and explained so that we could understand them. As an IT entrepreneur, I can only say: Law-As-A-Service! Many thanks to the PHH team.”
