Profession: Lawyer
Industry: Competition


I am a young competition lawyer from Germany who has now relocated to Belgium. I am currently studying in a LLM Programme at the College of Europe in Bruges. After finishing my studies, I am looking to start as a competition lawyer in private practice. I have gained first experience in the private practice sector as an associate at Cleary Gottlieb prior to coming to the College. I am keen to learn more about the competition law world in Brussels, be it private practice, enforcement, or in-house.
