My many years of experience as an expert is based on extensive experience as a practitioner in the banking and stock exchange business as well as on intensive legal consideration of the subject areas.

The combination of both areas of expertise is the ideal basis for my expert work: I speak “both languages”, namely those of the legal user and those of the capital market and banking practitioner.
