I am a partner in our Corporate and M&A team in Munich and a member of our Tech & Comms and Life Sciences & Healthcare Sector Groups, offering our clients in-depth experience in all facets of corporate law (transactional and non-transactional), alongside a deep understanding of their sector and business. Beside my legal advice, I am a member of the management of the German offices.
My specialisms are:
PE & VC,
Employee incentive plans,
Global corporate housekeeping Projects and
General corporate law.
Over the years, I have gained broad experience in advising purchasers and sellers in German and international M&A as well as investors and funds in venture capital investments and financing rounds. This includes drafting and negotiating term sheets, share/asset purchase agreements, investment and shareholder agreements, joint venture and merger agreements and the coordination and undertaking of due diligence procedures.
I also advise our clients on questions concerning the reorganisation and restructuring of companies with particular focus on corporate and insolvency law and corporate governance.
My client base includes names of leading global innovation-strong companies from various industries, such as technology businesses Broadsoft, FLIR Systems, Luxoft or TomTom or companies active in life sciences and healthcare such as Precision Medicine, Omnicell or Tilray.
I have previously spent time working in the US and have been increasingly advising US clients in recent years. I am also a member of our China Desk Germany and regularly act on outbound China transactions. Years of working with US and China have proved extremely effective at perfecting my project management skills, so indispensable on complex cross-border transactions in these cost-conscious times.
I am co-author of the handbook 'Steueroptimierter Unternehmenskauf' (Tax-optimised Business Acquisition) published by Gabler Verlag.
