Education & Career

As a “native of Cologne”, Daniel has been loyal to our office since it’s birth. He studied law at the University of Cologne and focused his studies on international business law. During and even before his studies, Daniel worked as a programmer and was involved in the creation of websites, databases and individual business applications. A soft spot for technology even in the private sector is therefore self-explanatory.

Beyond the firm’s know-how management, he is particularly concerned with new technologies. This concerns not only consulting, but also the development of novel products. In doing so, he leads interdisciplinary teams and deals, among other things, with the areas of legal tech, design thinking, legal design & delivery in order to make our services even simpler and more efficient.



Our clients and colleagues appreciate Daniel for his technical expertise and his objective, solution-oriented manner. His interdisciplinary work also constantly creates new synergy effects, which facilitate both the work of our clients and our own work.
