I am a partner in our international Corporate Group in Frankfurt and co-head our international Private Equity Group, offering our clients more than 20 years' expertise in the international technology, telecommunications and media sectors.

My primary focus is on M&A transactions, in particular private equity transactions. Alongside M&A I regularly advise our clients on restructurings and distressed M&A.

I specialise in investments in companies that focus their business model on telecommunications and technology – ranging from telecommunication infrastructure investments to investments in companies with a technology-focused, 'asset-lean' business model.

In 2008 I joined the management of one of Germany's biggest broadband and cable TV providers, where I spent more than three years and was instrumental in the successful financial restructuring of the company.

In addition to being a German lawyer, I am admitted to the New York Bar as attorney-at-law and have worked for major US law firms in the past, both in Germany and the USA.
