In legal practice I provide corporate and institutional clients with advice in capital markets law as well as in asset management. Due to a banking background at the German BHF-Bank and a passion for investments, my activities are highly specialized on the German equity market.
German Securities Litigation - Class action
Shareholders of German registered companies have several possibilities to recover their investment losses. Under German Securities Law claimants can file individual lawsuits at the Intermediate court. Recently the German legislature has given claimants the option to file a class action against the stock company (Kapitalanlegermusterverfahren). In this procedure the claims of all shareholders are consilidated in one procedure. This class action has the advantage, that only a fraction of legal fees are incurred. This leads to a very limited risk of litigation for the individual shareholder.
The consultation of institutional investors in regard to their short investments deserves special attention. The analysis of the legal structure and the financial statements of incorporated companies provide a fundamental contribution to a successful implementation of short-strategies in the German market. To get a better view of my working methods, please take a look at the released articles under Publications.
