The Women in Law Conference | Vienna | September 12-14, 2024

Theresa Weger


Theresa Weger is an associate at FSM Attorneys at Law specialising in insolvency law and corporate / M&A. Feminism and gender equality are particularly important to her. She wrote her thesis on the topic of violence prevention with the title „Femicides in Austria 2020/2021 – do we have a problem?“ She analysed the systematic nature of gender based violence against women and developed solutions for preventing violence.

At 25, I’m still very young, but I’ve already experienced a few incidents where I’ve been at a disadvantage as a lawyer because I’m a woman. These disadvantages range from sexist insults and lower salaries than male colleagues to opportunities that I simply don’t have as a woman. I want to help ensure that future generations of female lawyers do not experience these issues.
