After completing my legal studies in Frankfurt am Main, I moved to Chicago, Illinois in 1999 to pursue my LL.M (Master of Laws) degree at Northwestern University. During my training, I returned to Frankfurt where I specialised in IP (Intellectual Property) and competition law.

In 2004, I joined Hays to develop our In-house division. Since 2007, I have been in charge of our entire legal team nationwide, which includes not only our law firm and patents units, but also our Legal Temp business (lawyers working in a temp capacity).

If you would like to discuss your particular needs, I would be happy to hear from you.

In Frankfurt am Main I studied law at Johann Wolfgang Goethe University. After completion of my second state exam, I headed the civil law/litigation department for a medium-sized firm of solicitors for two years. Prior to joining Hays Legal, I also worked for two years in his family’s business.

After completing my training as an insurance sales representative with one of the world's largest insurance companies with headquarters in Munich, I went on to complete my studies in business administration at The University of Applied Sciences, Munich. While pursuing my degree I continued to work within the insurance group and also spent some time in Mexico.

I began my career with Hays in 2008, working in the recruitment of IT and marketing specialists. In January 2016, I decided to move to our In-House Legal team.

Today, working closely with my team, I support companies, banks and other organisations in Bavaria in recruiting qualified lawyers across all levels of experience.

After completing a 12-year stint in the German armed forces, I studied commercial law at the Westphalian Technical College. While engaged with a large energy provider in the Rhineland, I wrote my dissertation on the Atomic Energy Act, which served as the basis for a parliamentary bill. In 2009, I began a very successful career with Hays in the area of Construction & Property, building on this success with Hays Legal in 2012.

Working within the Hays Legal team, I am responsible for looking after the in-house legal sector of Hays AG at their head office in Mannheim. I advise businesses and bank in Hessen and Baden-Württemberg on the recruitment of lawyers of all experience levels and in a variety of deployment options. If you are interested in having an in-depth market overview of both candidates and businesses, I would be happy to hear from you.

Since 2008, I have been working as an HR consultant and have been responsible for finding, selecting and recruiting managers and other professional specialists for a variety of roles. So when I joined Hays in 2016 I had already been involved in a number of challenging, cross-industry recruitment projects. As a co-founder and partner I helped establish a subsidiary of one of the leading personnel service providers in Hamburg.

At Hays Legal, I advise a variety of companies, banks and associations – especially in the North Rhine-Westphalia area – and assist in the recruitment of lawyers across all experience levels. I see myself not only as providing short-term assistance, but also as a long-term partner in your recruitment process – before, during and after a position has been successfully filled.

If you need additional staff for your legal department or are looking for a new professional challenge, please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to support and assist you further.

After completing my bachelor's degree in European Studies at the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands, I remained in Maastricht to complete a one-year master's degree in International Relations. During my studies I spent one semester in Turin. I also worked as a freelance employee of the Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg in Potsdam and Berlin.

I began my career with Hays in October 2016, where I was responsible for the recruitment of freelance IT specialists. Today, in our Hamburg office, I support companies and law firms throughout Germany in filling patent-related vacancies. I also help patent attorneys, engineers, agents, counsels and specialist patent-related legal personnel achieve additional flexibility in a tough and competitive market.
