About
Born in Munich, Germany I studied law in the university towns of Tübingen and Münster. After graduating in Münster I went for two years of apprenticeships to Berlin, Frankfurt and South Africa, where I was able to work for a judge, a state attorney, the German government and several law firms. After finishing my second state exam I went to the US to study at Cornell Tech/Cornell Law School and finished there with my LL.M. in Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship. I now advise small, medium and large size companies in all matters of IT, Data Protection, VC and coporate law and am focused on German and EU matters in the US market.
