In collaboration with you I will work on tailor-made solutions fitting your organizations best possible. My experience gained at our own family business brings in my understanding for organizational restraints.

Strong network

I am working with lots of experts from all different specific tax areas. I gained my extensive network on experts from my assignments with PwC, Deloitte, and KPMG.

10 years of experience on German and international tax law with Big-4-advisors focussed on transactions

I have been working with PwC for many years as well as with KPMG and Deloitte, in Berlin, Frankfurt am Main and New York City, USA.

My focuses lie with German and international tax consulting for M&A of companies and real estate as well as financing structures:

  • German and international real estate transactions in Berlin
  • M&A projects of different industries for strategic and PE investors in Frankfurt am Main.
  • Company and financing structuring on German and international listed companies as well as start ups in Berlin.
  • International tax consulting for German companies with US activities in New York City.

International Tax Law has been my strong focus with my studies (incl. PhD and certificate for international tax law) as well as practical experience.

My practical involvement in our family business ensures pragmatic approaches to tax law related and other business challenges while being able to dig into key questions deeply when necessary.

About me “Taxes are my life, but I have more than one”


While being in love with German tax law I have a strong desire to take responsibility for society related topics. By establishing the Elefantinnenrunde I would like to bring brilliant female minds together and find solutions for relevant questions in society. Elefantinnenrunde is a network connecting current and former scholars of different foundations such as Fulbright, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung, together with top-managers. I was proud to having received a personal invitation by Chancelor Angela Merkel to discussing on topics relevant for women of my generation.
