My main areas of practice
A particular focus of my advice is the legally secure design, regulatory protection and defence of business models in highly regulated industries, especially in the area of legal tech. In recent years, I have helped some of the market leaders in the (further) development of their business models.

Another focus of my work is litigation in cases with a strong technology connection.

I advise our clients in German and English.

I publish regularly, in particular on regulatory developments in the field of legal tech, most recently inter alia:

Personal engagement
I am a founding member and was a board member of Legal Tech Verband Deutschland e.V.

I am also involved in legal education, most recently through lectures at Bucerius Law School as part of the Bucerius/UC Hastings Summer Program "Licensing Transactions in Intellectual Property" and a seminar on AI and Data Protection Law of the Law and AI Research Group.

My background
Before becoming a lawyer, I did research on internet and media regulation at the Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research in Hamburg and at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin.
