What I’ve become

Lawyer. This profession is similarly varied and the speed of sound can also be an advantage. I studied at the Albert-Ludwigs-University, Freiburg in the beautiful Breisgau. I successfully completed my law degree – thanks in part to the most hours of sunshine in Germany – in the summer of 2018. Anyone who has ever been to Freiburg can understand why I stayed there for my doctorate. I chose “The D&O Insurance of the Supervisory Board” as my dissertation topic due to its practical relevance and supported the legal department of a corporate group as a research assistant during my doctoral studies. During my legal clerkship, I worked for a major international law firm in Düsseldorf, for the tax office on the Swiss border and for a Swiss MGA (Managing General Agent) in Zurich. During this time, Switzerland managed to surpass even Freiburg with its exciting financial world and spectacular peaks. Therefore, after having mastered the second state exam, I moved to Switzerland and started working as a lawyer at Pontinova AG. My expertise is mainly in insurance and corporate law. I focus on advising in all areas related to the capital market and the world of startups.
