In the aforementioned fields of law (see "specialist fields") I advise and defend

  • company staff in ongoing or threatened criminal or administrative offence proceedings directed against them
  • companies in ongoing or threatened criminal or administrative offence proceedings, in particular when they are threatened with a fine or the confiscation of unlawful gains (so-called "skimming of profits").

In addition to my work in criminal and administrative offence proceedings I provide general advice on dangerous goods law and questions of responsibility for adequate securing of loads in goods transport.

I support companies in the measures they take to avoid organisational and supervisory culpability and in other matters by helping with in-house training courses.

In legal areas where the technical content makes it professionally expedient, I join forces with technical and scientific experts. This applies equally to indispensable collaboration with other lawyers who are specialists in areas like environmental law or transportation law/logistic services  and are recognised as having a good reputation in their field.

The bulk of my clients are trading and industrial companies, and also municipal companies with their staff. Most of these are companies in the chemicals industry and other manufacturing sectors like the paper industry, the waste and recycling industry, the forwarding and transport business, as well as retail and construction.
