I am a Partner in Fieldfisher's Munich office and advise on complex litigation, primarily before international arbitration courts.

I have 15 years of experience in enforcing the interests of my clients before (arbitration) courts as well as in out-of-court dispute resolution. My philosophy is that the best dispute is the one that can be settled quickly and cost-effectively without the involvement of third parties. If formal proceedings are nevertheless necessary, I conduct them efficiently and always taking into account the economic significance of the dispute.

The main focus of my work is on disputes in the automotive sector as well as in the energy sector and in connection with large, international infrastructure projects and in the insurance sector. For example, I have successfully represented various clients in a number of arbitration proceedings in gas pricing disputes arising from long-term gas supply contracts, in supply chain disputes in the automotive supply industry, as well as in in the area of complex infrastructure projects in the offshore wind industry or in the assertion of claims in the solar sector.

My experience includes arbitrations under the ICC, DIS, LCIA, VIAC, Swiss and UNCITRAL Rules as well as various ad-hoc proceedings. I have conducted disputes in many major arbitration venues around the world on contracts governed by different jurisdictions.

I advise as early as the contract drafting stage to design the appropriate dispute resolution clause. Especially in the supply chain or in complex contractual relationships, the appropriate contract provision can help to optimize the starting position for a later dispute or to prevent it altogether.

If formal (arbitration) proceedings cannot be avoided, I represent clients in all phases of the dispute, in particular in interim relief proceedings for the preservation of assets oas well as in the recognition and enforcement of judgments and arbitral awards or the defence against them. I am also active as an arbitrator myself and can incorporate this experience into my client work.

In addition, I have many years of experience in the area of corporate disputes, whether between shareholders or in the context of managerial liability. Insurance companies and the interplay between coverage and liability, with which I am well acquainted, often play an important role.

I can look back on experience gained in hundreds of court cases as well as a large number of arbitration proceedings which I have conducted as lead counsel. My clients come from all areas of business life - from large corporations and medium-sized companies to private individuals.

JUVE lists me as a frequently recommended lawyer for Dispute Resolution. Among other things, I am described as "creative, good also in out-of-court dispute resolution" (client) as well as "very pleasant, very professional" (competitor).

I publish and speak regularly on arbitration topics and take an interest in the Spanish legal market.

I advise my clients in German, English and Spanish.

I find balance in family life with my three children and in outdoor activities.
