The founder’s experience

Early on in my career, I realized that a lawyer may only call himself 'internationally practicing' if he has also experienced life and corporate culture in other jurisdictions.  For that reason, I have studied and practiced law in as many countries as possible. Besides Vienna (Austria), my journey has taken me to the following locations: Mexico City (Mexico), Nijmegen (The Netherlands), Singapore and New York City (USA).

Furthermore, I dedicate time to ongoing education in the field of new technologies. I am intrigued by how legal tech and blockchain/distributed ledger technologies allow me to offer additional value to my clients. Moreover, I regularly publish articles and videos in which I address current legal issues.

I will apply all the experiences that I have gained so far when providing advice to you.
