During my time as inhouse-council in a bank I delt with every sort of extra ordinary credit-securities in and outside of Germany - national and international - and taught this topic at the university of Hamburg.

In very many bancruptcies of bigger and smaller companies I was member of the board of obligees working tightly together with very many liquidators in the north of Germany.

Apart from all this business I - as a lawyer all the time - advised many clients of a consultant in various parts of their business: founded companies; was involved in reconstrutions as a result of cash-flow-problems.
