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.

I completed by BA and MA studies in History with honours at Hamburg University. I then went on to pursue my doctorate, submitting and defending my PhD dissertation in 2015.

While working on my doctorate, I also worked in various research and teaching capacities. This included a project on the perception of non-Christian religions from the European perspective funded by the European Research Council at Hamburg University. I also worked as a lecturer at the Free University of Berlin and the Christian Albrechts University in Kiel. During my studies I also carried out research at the German Historical Institute in Paris.

In my current capacity at Hays, I provide advice and support to various companies, banks and organisations in and around Cologne and Hamburg. I also assist and facilitate 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.
