My Approach

Today, companies of all sizes are confronted with a variety of legal topics and administrative hurdles. Management, the board of directors and the supervisory board must be able to make decisions and function, shareholder and general meetings need to be prepared and held, resolutions must be passed, and documents require submittance to registers and authorities on time. The importance of corporate law is constantly increasing, accompanied by compliance and corporate governance issues. This is where I advise and support – in a contemporary and sensitive manner.

Main focus
