My work as a lawyer is characterised by discretion. I attach great importance to personal consultation.

Rather than "only" providing you with legal advice on individual questions, it is my aim to work with you to find a suitable and satisfactory overall solution for your particular problem.

As a lawyer and defence counsel in criminal matters, I will represent you in all phases of civil, administrative and criminal proceedings. My clients include private individuals as well as companies and organisations and I also provide advice and support in extrajudicial matters, such as drafting your contracts or setting up a new company for you.

My previous professional activities in Austria and abroad have provided me with access to a network of experts from various fields. If necessary, I can call on notaries, tax consultants, management consultants, auditors, expert witnesses, PR experts and detectives. As a lawyer, I cooperate on a regular basis with the renowned law firm OBLIN Rechtsanwälte GmbH. This network of experts enables me to handle even extensive and complex cases for you in the best possible way.
