As a strategic advisor I make my clients' interests my personal mission.

After 20 years of experience in international law firms, I am acknowledged as one of the leading labour law lawyers. s a German lawyer and a Solicitor in England & Wales as well as a certified data privacy expert (CIPP/E, CIPM), I advise companies and international conglomerates in complex change processes, strategic reorganisations, compliance and complex litigation.

In my own law firm, I can apply my competencies without friction losses of an international law firm in my three key areas of expertise:

  • Labour law
  • Company pension schemes
  • Data privacy

Alongside my international experience, my clients benefit from my strategic and economic point of view. In addition, my pragmatism, implementation drive and process experience facilitate results-orientated effective solutions. I am always available for my clients. You will receive prompt feedback and actionable advice.

With my established network of equally excellent colleagues from all relevant legal areas as well as non-legal advisors such as consultants, remuneration experts and actuaries I can complete the most complex and time critical missions.
