• Certified Attorney for Labor and Employment Law
  • Certified Attorney for Commercial and Company Law
  • Sworn Translator for the English language
I have been practicing as attorney in Augsburg since 1977.
My activities over the course of the years have covered all relevant areas of Civil Law, with special emphasis on private international law cases. I have handled a number of court cases in the U.K., U.S.A., Scandinavia, the Benelux countries, Italy, France, Austria, Venezuela, and have represented in and out of court in Germany cases connected with parties from the above-named countries as well as from Bangladesh, Canada, China, Colombia, Ghana, Greece, India, Iran, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Namibia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Portugal, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tunisia, Turkey et alia.

In such cases, I cooperate, where necessary, with a number of selected law-firms around the world, corresponding in English. My interest in international law cases has roots going far into the past: I spent a year as a High School exchange student in Pennsylvania/U.S.A. and later on, after my first Law Degree, 6 months in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria, doing field work for my thesis on the South African Monopolistic Conditions Act. After my admission to the German Bar Association, I acquired a State Degree as Translator and Interpreter for the English language, with emphasis on legal terminology.

Day-to-day business naturally brings more national than international cases. In the national law, I have focussed in recent years on labor and employment law as well as on commercial law and the law of companies including their establishment. Very important on my scale have been agency contracts and other fields of distribution in national and international trade.

A further sector of priority is sports law: I was founder member of the Association of Sports' Lawyers within the DAV (German Attorneys' Association), and am still member of the DGVR (German Institution for the Law of Distribution).

In the recent past, I have been called upon as arbitrator and mediator (ADR) on several occasions.

I will be happy to assist you in your legal matters.
