Having been educated in Germany and England (Stockport,1970) I studied law in Tübingen and was trained at the Stuttgart High Court. In the end of the year 1984 I qualified by passing the State examn and was admitted to the Stuttgart Bar in early 1985. After having worked as a labour law specialist for a couple of years (junior partner in a Stuttgart law firm) I was asked to organize the legal framework for about 7.000 people in Saxony who had lost their jobs after the German reunion in 1990. In this position I had to give legal advice in the process of incorporation of new companies, assisting in business plans, drafting of working contracts, etc. (1991-1997). In 1993 I decided to execute a spin off from my former law firm and build up Diem & Partner. Having prepared myself quite well by developing a management handbook for our lawyers as well as the back-office staff we developed in the way I had intended. We re-opened my former firm’s office in Istanbul/Turkey and merged with a French lawyer who opened us the access to France - one more cross-border market in our firm's service range .
In 1994 I was elected member of the board of Stuttgart Bar, 2002 member of it’s executive board and from 2006-2012 I had the honour of presiding the Stuttgart Bar. From 1997 up to now I am chairman of the Quality Standards Committee of the German Federal Bar.

In 1991 I founded one of the first network of law firms in Germany (Advoselect EEIG) and worked as it’s Chairman of the Supervisory Board until 2011.

I am a lecturer at Tübingen University (“Eberhard-Karls-Universität”) and at the Stuttgart High Court's training programme for the legal professions.
