About Me

Working as a partner in our international Corporate Group in Munich, I am a highly experienced corporate lawyer specialising in international M&A transactions.

The focus of my practice is on advising clients on national and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital transactions as well as in the entire field of general corporate and commercial law.

I mainly advise clients from the technology and communications space, in particular in the aviation and aerospace, life sciences, and energy and utilities sectors. I am an expert in the field of restructuring with a particular focus on insolvency scenarios and proceedings.

During my legal traineeship, I worked for the legal department of an international industrial group and the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce in Chennai, India.

I am a co-author of the handbook Steueroptimierter Unternehmenskauf (Tax Optimised Company Purchase) published by Gabler Verlag.
