I specialise in information, technology and communications law.

I provide legal advice in situations where innovative technologies face regulatory issues. My expertise includes areas such as the Internet of Things (IoT), online services, social media, traditional media and information security.

As an expert on information and data law, the German Lawyers Association (DAV) has appointed me as member of its Committee for Information Law. Within the IAPP, I serve as a member of the IAPP's European Advisory Board.
