About Me

As a partner and a member of our automotive and commercial teams in Hamburg I advise international and domestic clients on a wide range of commercial law matters.

My practice focuses on complex commercial contracts, trade and distribution law and commercial dispute resolution. I also represent clients with regards to product liability and supply chain issues, for example, product recalls, field actions, delivery stops, regulatory topics and general liability matters. In addition, I have a profound knowledge in the field of risk and compliance management including the assessment, design and implementation of compliance measures, policies and procedures.

Prior to joining our firm, I worked for renowned law firms in Frankfurt/Main and Hamburg.
