Christian Lentföhr provides advice mainly to medium-sized companies as well as their shareholders and managing directors. As a member of the board of a non-profit association, he is familiar with the entrepreneurial way of looking at things, too, and relies on this knowledge in his consultations and negotiations.

The key aspects of his activity involving company law concentrate on contract drafting taking into consideration the tax implications in the event of corporate succession, formation or transformation. When it comes to disputes among shareholders, he can resort to his special trial expertise in preparing settlements out of court (e.g. in mediation proceedings), among other things.

In the field of labor law, Christian Lentföhr provides advice to employers, senior executives and members of corporate bodies particularly on all issues of individual labor law and service law for managing directors. In conjunction with the certified IT law and competition law attorneys of SNP Schlawien, he handles questions of employee data protection and the protection of companies against anticompetitive practices of employees, e.g. unfair enticement of employees, unauthorized disclosure of trade and business secrets, employees taking away customer data when they leave, and restraints on competition.

After his studies focusing on international law at the Institut IFHV of the Ruhr University of Bochum, he gained authorized dealer law and commercial agent law expertise working in the foreign trade division of a DAX-listed corporation.
