I offer strategic solutions in complex labour law, company pension and data privacy challenges. Finally, in my own law firm. After 20 years as a lawyer, partner and practice leader in international law firms I focus on these areas of expertise with an innovative, high-quality law firm advisory concept. Experienced, excellent, engaged.

My clients are employers and executives of national and international corporates as well as financial services firms.

Labour law

You want to introduce changes in your company. Change the strategy, streamline the organization, expand, introduce new ways of working as well as compensation and incentive schemes, or outsource services. I support your company in all relevant labor law challenges. Innovative and legally proof, whether in a domestic or an international context.

Company pension schemes

You want to replace your old-fashioned defined benefit pension scheme or reduce your company’s pension liabilities. Design pensions works agreements or pension collective bargaining agreements, settle pension commitments through lump-sum payments or transfer pension liabilities. I am your partner in implementing these changes and I also represent you in court when necessary.

Data privacy

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in place. Many companies are relying on hastily cobbled together solutions. Systematic, legally proof concepts for all work processes and policies as the ultimate solution are still rare. I help you to protect the personal data of your clients, service providers, employees and job applicants. In data protection litigation and administrative proceedings by data protection authorities (DPA) I will be at your side representing you.

My promise: I deliver superior value with innovative strategies and a realistic budget.
