I advise national and international clients on all matters related to banking and finance with a focus on digitalisation and regulatory law.

My focus is on the development and market implementation of new business models in the financial sector. I advise banks, payment service providers, financial services institutions and other businesses on their digitalisation projects and bring detailed knowledge in the area around disruptive technologies, such as fintech, insurtech, regtech and applications of blockchain / distributed ledger technology. My work in this area extends far beyond the financial services sector. I am in constant communication with regulators, incumbents and start-ups concerning the regulatory process of relevant permissions, registrations and alternative structures to find practical and creative solutions for my clients.

Specialist expertise on anti-money laundering, anti-corruption and anti-terrorist financing legislation and my membership in our international Regulatory Compliance and Investigations working group complete my profile.

In addition, I work on cross-border financing matters, in particular regarding acquisition financing and project financing in relation to renewable energy and infrastructure projects. This regularly involves debt funds and their regulatory environment.

I also advise national and international corporations, as well as banks and investment funds, with regard to the organisation and structuring of their respective cash management. Integral elements of my practice naturally include domestic, pan-European and international cash pooling compositions and the corresponding requirements across many jurisdictions.
