On January 22nd, 2015, for the second time ELSA (The European Law Students’ Association) held the M&A Contract Competition “Seal the Deal”.
Once again Greiter Pegger Kofler & Partners’ Dr. Georg Huber was a member of the jury and MMMag. Barbara Egger-Russe one of the speakers.
The two teams, each made up of three students, had 1.5 hours to negotiate their deals, sometimes prepared to compromise, at others adamantly unmoving. The teams were judged by a distinguished panel of experts (Univ.-Prof. Dr. Georg Eckert– Innsbruck University, former President of the Innsbruck Appellate Court, Dr. Walter Pilgermair, MSc. and lawyer Dr. Georg Huber, LL.M. – Greiter, Pegger, Kofler & Partners). Apart from assessing the contracts themselves and legal skills, emphasis was also placed on the teams’ rhetorical and negotiating skills.
