Welcome to the law office of Bettina Hörtner, attorney at law!

I am an attorney at law acting on my own and a boutique lawfirm specialised on financial market regulatory matters. Due to my many years of national and international experience at a big international lawfirm, at the regulatory authority and as in-house counsel I have a unique job profile:

  • Legal department of Creditanstalt AG
  • Officer/leader of onsight inspections at the Austrian Securities Supervisory Authority (effectuation of the first onsight inspection according to the Securities Supervisory Act in Austria).
  • Attorney at law in a big international lawfirm.
  • Consultant in one of the big 4 worldwide active accountant firms.

„Regulatory requirements must not hinder business, but serve as legal framwork for it. That is where my services start: Together with my client I develop tailor made, efficient, hands-on and global solutions within that framework.“
