CHSH Cerha Hempel Spiegelfeld Hlawati, one of Austria's leading corporate law firms, has provided the VAIL RESORTS Group with comprehensive legal advice in connection with its successful entry into the European market.
Listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the VAIL RESORTS Group has an annual turnover of approximately USD 1 billion, runs ski resorts and hotels in Vail and Beaver Creek, and specialises in providing digital marketing services for ski resorts via its subsidiary Mountain News Corporation. Customers are offered a range of information and services, such as snow reports, web cams and photos, as well as events and (the price of) lift passes. Three-times World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn publishes her blog on the company’s website every week.
The VAIL RESORTS Group was advised by CHSH Partner Thomas Trettnak (also admitted to practice law in New York) and Associate Thomas Mittag. Thomas Trettnak: "We're extremely pleased that the VAIL RESORTS Group chose CHSH – with its extensive experience in the States and with internet start-ups – to be its Central European legal counsel. The fact that the VAIL RESORTS Group picked Innsbruck as the location for its European headquarters underscores Austria's role as a top skiing nation and also its status as Europe's premier market for 'internet start-ups'."
