I am an English Barrister and a German Rechtsanwalt (and also admitted but not currently practising as an English Solicitor-Advocate).  I qualified in London as a Solicitor in 1986, becoming a Solicitor-Advocate in 2005, and both an English Barrister and a German lawyer (Rechtsanwalt) in 2012.  I have worked in London, Hong Kong, New York and Germany (Frankfurt and Cologne).  After many years as a Partner of Hogan Lovells International LLP I commenced my own practice as an independent legal professional in 2012, both in London and in Germany.  I have also been a consultant and partner of Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP in London and a Consultant to the World Bank on foreign investment policy.  I joined the law firm Osborne Clarke in January 2017, where I am a partner, based in the Cologne office.

Details of my current practice, education and training, languages, memberships and lecturing appear in individual pages of this section.
