As an enthusiastic and dedicated lawyer in the field of investment and commercial arbitration but also specialized in sports law, I combine first experiences in sports law and the passion for sport itself. I gained profound knowledge in the sports field as a trainee lawyer at a boutique law firm in sports arbitration (Martens Lawyers, Munich). Through my doctoral thesis, I attained a solid understanding of arbitration and sports law (University of Berne). Further, my LL.M. in Australia allowed me to obtain knowledge in international arbitration and legal English. In addition to my legal education, I developed my qualities both as a team leader and member through my active role at rowing clubs. Pursuing competitive sports (Rowing and Coastal Rowing) taught me very early on to set goals and to work consistently and disciplined to reach them. My balanced personality is sourced through strong family ties and wide cultural interests (traveling, symphony concerts; exhibitions: especially impressionism and expressionism).
