I am a lawyer and entrepreneur, founder and CEO of the enterprise automation company BRYTER GmbH.

Born in Mainz, growing up & going to school close to Stuttgart & La Paz, Bolivia. Civil service in the Picardie in France before studying Law in Mainz, Paris and to some extent in Münster. I interned and worked around the globe, from Seoul and Shanghai to London, Paris, Washington and New York before finally settling for Berlin. I am an attorney specializing in international arbitration & commercial litigation, but chose to take a detour to the entrepreneurial and tech world. In 2013, I co-founded the academic network and recruiting platform Thesius that was later sold to persona service AG as well as the legal tech & automation startup Lexalgo (acquired by BRYTER in 2018).

I am a member to the Executive Faculty of the think tank-like institution Bucerius Center on the Legal Profession as well as to the Task Force Legal Tech of the Association of Germany Lawyers (Deutscher Anwaltsverein e.V.). I lecture on IT-Law and Legal Technologies at the Frankfurt University, the intersection of law, technology and business is my core topic of research, work and speaking engagements. Intensity and speed of tech-business-reality often dictate everyday life – fortunately, there is some time left for this eclectic collection of legal and entrepreneurial thoughts and finds.

I am a board member to a number of startup-companies, some of which I am also invested in. For a disclosure please contact me directly.
