About Me

Senior Associate for IP, Copyright, and Industry Regulation – with a focus on Digital Media, Games, and Cannabis.

I assist clients in the Digital Media sector in implementing their ideas legally and strategically. This includes addressing contract and intellectual property issues to develop, launch, and distribute games, advertising, or other content. I specialise in providing advice on all aspects of Digital Entertainment, particularly immersive (luxury) consumer goods, NFTs, mobile and blockchain games, synchronization rights, music streaming, digital rights management, user-generated content, and the metaverse. Additionally, I regularly support our clients in media law, gambling law, and (technical) youth protection.

One of the main areas of my practice is platform law and artificial intelligence. I specialise in all aspects of (EU) platform law and the platform economy, especially online copyright law (e.g., according to the EU Copyright Directive), as well as provider liability, provider regulation, and content moderation (e.g., under the EU Digital Services Act). Furthermore, I advise our clients on the implementation of (generative) artificial intelligence, both internally within their companies (such as handling training data and AI output) and in relation to their products (e.g., advertising, games, or platforms). I provide guidance on all matters concerning intellectual property and regulation (e.g., within the framework of the EU Artificial Intelligence Act).

Regularly, I advise our clients in matters of communication and advertising law, with a focus on consumer goods (food and cannabis), particularly in cases of false reporting and PR crises (reputation management). Additionally, I provide comprehensive support on advertising claims and marketing campaigns for food and dietary supplements, scientifically supported health advertisements (according to the German Medicines Advertising Act), online and influencer marketing, and contests.

A particular emphasis is placed on cannabis, especially regarding product communication, youth protection, and distribution in light of the planned decriminalisation in Germany. I assist our clients in complying with legal requirements, shaping their business models related to cannabis (such as CBD products or medical cannabis), and effectively communicating their ideas.

I regularly represent our clients in court and before authorities.
