My long-standing experience covers antitrust investigations of the European Commission and the German competition authority, incl. leniency applications, and support in dawn raids.
I act on behalf of clients in cartel damage claims. I regularly advise clients on vertical matters, i.e. the competition law implications of distribution and supply agreements. I provide competition law guidance for competitor cooperations such as R&D, licensing agreements or purchasing cooperations.
I have extensive experience in the design and implementation of cost-effective compliance programmes. This includes competition law compliance trainings as well as audits.
I regularly advice clients with regard to German and EU merger control as well as with regard to multi-jurisdictional filings. I represent clients before German and European courts as well as in proceedings of the German Bundeskartellamt and the European Commission.

I advise numerous Japanese companies on antitrust compliance and represent them in antitrust proceedings. I got to know Japanese culture on business trips to Tokyo. I appreciate it very much and enjoy visits to the excellent Japanese restaurants in Düsseldorf.
I am a founding partner of Fieldfisher's office in Dusseldorf. Prior to joining Fieldfisher, I was a partner in the competition practice group of the German boutique SBR. From 2005 to 2011, I worked as a competition lawyer for Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer based in Dusseldorf and Beijing, China. Prior to that, I received legal training in the antitrust practice group of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius in Washington, DC (United States). I hold a doctor of laws degree from the renowned University of Göttingen, Germany.
My recent work includes Bundeskartellamt and European Commission investigations; cartel damage claims for various clients, compliance training seminars and audits for DAX, Nikkei 225, and NASDAQ 100 corporations and medium sized German corporations (Mittelstand).
I speak regularly at seminars and conferences and have published articles on German and European competition law.
References and recommendations for me and our great team can be found in JUVE Handbuch, Legal 500, Who’s who Legal Germany, Best Lawyers, Handelsblatt, Future Leaders Competition, WirtschaftsWoche (Top Lawyer Compliance) as well as FOCUS (Top Lawyer Competition), which I am thankful for.

I am a member of the German Association of Competition Lawyers.
I advise my clients in German and English.
In my free time, I play the piano and enjoy the moment with my children.
