With more than 20 years of experience as a lawyer and in-house counsel, particularly in international contract law, quality risk management and IT law, I am a partner in our commercial team, based in Hamburg.

With a particular focus on the technology and communications, financial services and life sciences sectors, my main areas of expertise are within drafting, negotiating and executing all types of contracts, in particular complex framework agreements or technology projects including technological development and innovation projects, licences, IT and business process outsourcing (BPO).
