I have been working in criminal law since my studies and have been advising German and international clients for many years exclusively in commercial and tax criminal law. During my time as a PhD student, I also studied philosophy. I worked as a criminal defence lawyer in a medium-size law firm, before I founded FHM together with Michael Fuhlrott and Mayeul Hiéramente. I defend individuals before all German authorities and - if necessary - before all courts, and I represent companies facing sanctions in the context of criminal and administrative offence proceedings. I also advise companies that have suffered damages from criminal behavior. Together with my colleagues at FHM who focus on labor law, I conduct internal investigations.

Tell us a little bit about your practice and what makes it unique.

FHM is a boutique law firm that advises exclusively in the fields of criminal business law, criminal tax law and employment law. We have been involved in many major proceedings in the field of commercial and fiscal criminal law in recent years. Publicly known cases include the Love Parade catastrophe and the so-called cum/ex-deals. In addition to our respective core competences, we can cover the interfaces between labour and white-collar crime law at the highest level. When we conduct internal investigations, we focus on the essentials from the very beginning. If necessary, we work together with colleagues who offer evaluations by means of complex software solutions at low cost, so that only the legally demanding work is done by us.
