For example, he advised the supervisory board of a DAX 30 company following antitrust fine imposition proceedings.

He studied law in Dusseldorf and Munster.In 2005, after qualifying as a lawyer, he started his legal career at a renowned German law-firm. At that time he focused on commercial and corporate litigation. A couple of years later, in August 2007, Andreas joined Hogan Lovells.
