As a German attorney, I have been advising clients from Germany, England and the USA primarily in IT, media, gambling, trademark, copyright and competition law for about 20 years. In information technology, I mainly support large and middle-sized enterprises with the creation and launch of new ERP systems and other software, with the outsourcing of IT infrastructures and business processes, the drafting and negotiating of project contracts and service level agreements, all legal issues regarding cloud computing, the sales and licensing of software, IT asset management and the protection of personal data.As a result of legally representing one of the world's largest e-commerce platforms in many court proceedings over many years, I have considerable experience and knowledge in defending claims for injunctions and damages for third-party content. Lately, 3D printing and additive manufacturing processes started to raise new questions with regard to the protection of intellectual and industrial property law, copyright law and the protection of three dimensional trademarks that I am ideally suited to answer drawing from my many years of work at the intersection of IP and IT law.

In media law, I help corporate and individual clients to assert their rights to film and music works, to check and prepare catalogues of rights and to transfer and license rights of use to copyright-protected works.In gambling law, I advise domestic and international companies on opening up the German market for sports betting and casino games and have been representing one of the world’s largest sports betting and gambling platforms on the Internet in front of German courts for over 10 years.Clients who want to offer prize games that are not classed as games of chance also profit from the experience I have gained.

In videogaming, I am offering advice to premium game labels, publishers and distributors of computer and video games and game consoles, suppliers of browser- and client-based games, manufacturers of console periphery, providers of online entertainment services, electronic publishing houses, developers of middleware, graphic processors and chip sets for personal computer and games consoles, video game developers and suppliers of interactive entertainment software

In the e-health sector, I am focusing on the challenges posed by national and European privacy laws as well as all legal questions related to information technology, product liability and advertising rules that apply to the healtchcare sector.

Additionally, I support my clients in selecting, researching and registering suitable trademarks and pursuing trademark claims in and out of court.
