My engagement in M&A transactions usually begins well before the kick-off and ends long after the closing. In between, I serve my clients along the way to ensure a successful completion of our project not only as an experienced expert but also as pioneer, sparring partner, trusted advisor, troubleshooter and highly motivated team player.
I have been working in our Frankfurt and Duesseldorf offices since 2020 as a partner in our international Corporate Practice Group. I give advice on M&A transactions, joint ventures, restructuring and corporate law. My work focuses on cross-border M&A transactions for German and international strategic investors. In addition, I have specialised experience in distressed M&A, in sales mandates (including auction procedures) and in advising private equity investors and their portfolio companies.
Before joining our firm, I worked for roughly ten years in the Corporate/M&A departments of two major German law firms in Duesseldorf, and completed a secondment of several months at a global law firm in Boston in the Private Equity Transactions group.
My advisory services particularly focus on M&A transactions in the dynamic industry sectors of technology & communications and retail & consumer as well as on hydrogen-related investments. In the technology & communications sector, it is extremely interesting to guide my clients in investments in future technology. In this way, I learn about technology that will revolutionize our future at an early stage. The retail & consumer sector is in a phase of disruptive change. Supporting my clients in adapting and expanding their business models through M&A transactions is as challenging as it is exciting. Finally, I am very enthusiastic about hydrogen and its future as one of the most important energy carriers of a carbon-neutral future. To advise my clients on investments in this area, explore the awesome growth opportunities with them and contribute to their investments is very thrilling.
My clients regularly praise my ability to put myself in their business issues and problems, my enthusiasm and passion - and last but not least my sense of humour!
