Christian assists clients on all aspects of corporate and loan restructurings, often involving multiple jurisdictions. He also represents their interests in insolvency proceedings and handles enforcement actions, including ship arrests. Furthermore, he advises on shipping related regulatory issues, including money laundering, data protection and economic sanctions and embargos.
With the emergence of new technologies, including artificial intelligence and blockchain, Christian also helps clients to assess the legal impact that these new developments have on their activities and maximise any commercial opportunities that may arise.
A further significant part of Christian’s work concerns renewable energy. Having been involved from the early days of Germany’s offshore wind industry, Christian advises a broad client base, including contractors, wind farm owners, ship yards and ship owners, on all major aspects of successfully establishing and running a wind farm.
"When advising clients, my ambition is to satisfy two objectives: to think outisde the box and to understand clients' true needs. I don't want to sell clients a roadster if they actually need an estate car (and vice versa)."
