I specialize in M&A and finance transactions, corporate law and commercial contracts. I have gathered extensive experience in coordinating and executing cross-border transactions (including due diligences).
Before joining Schjødt, I was a Senior Associate at Bird & Bird LLP, working in its International Banking & Finance Group as well as in its International Corporate Group. Furthermore, I was a Consultant for Beiten Burkhardt and was seconded to the headquarter of Linde AG's Gas Division. I obtained a Doctorate degree in Law, writing on a topic of German and Austrian corporate law.
My native language is German and I am a member of Schjødt's German Desk.
