Areas of focus

My primary responsibility is the handling of cases before all civil panels of the Federal Court of Justice. Thus, as an appeals lawyer, my work spans the entire spectrum of civil and commercial law.

My activity in all branches of Banking and Capital Markets Law goes back to my study programme and doctorate and to my time as an in-house lawyer at a well-known private bank. I can also draw on my considerable experience in this field as a lawyer before courts of instance, which is why Banking and Capital Markets Law continues to constitute an important area of focus within my work as a lawyer at the Federal Court of Justice. With this area of focus in mind, in 2008, I gained the additional qualification of Specialist Lawyer (Fachanwalt) for Banking and Capital Markets Law shortly after the qualification was introduced.

Areas of focus of my work as an appeals lawyer are:

  • inheritance law
  • banking law
  • company law
  • industrial property law, including patents
  • commercial agency law
  • real estate law
  • private international law
  • bankruptcy law
  • capital markets law
  • law on sales
  • anti-trust law
  • brokerage law
  • medical law
  • insurance law

Furthermore, I can appear before the other supreme Federal courts, the Joint Senate of the Supreme Courts of Germany, the Federal Constitutional Court and international courts, particularly those of the European Union. If desired, I provide support in an advisory capacity during the trial court stages of a case with regard to subsequent appeal proceedings. I am also open to assuming arbitration assignments, to operating as an executor and to authoring legal opinions.
