Getting your legalese linguistically to the point is a prerequisite, in order to communicate all matters properly to your counterpart.


Legally my specialty area is in intellectual property law, in particular trademarks, copyright, design protection as well as software- and internet law, as well as the drafting of contracts in these areas. Due to my admission as attorney-at-law in Austria and in New York / USA as well as my postgraduate LL.M. degree and my worldwide network of colleagues I can support you – almost – without boundaries.
