Benedikt has a 'thinking out of the box' approach for finding creative approaches for seemingly complicated issues. His thirst for knowledge constantly motivates him to acquire a deep understanding of his client's business. Supporting clients in commercial and corporate disputes since 2013, he applies this understanding by translating complex cases into straightforward stories – an ability that has helped him to win numerous dispute cases related to business evaluation issues and commercial disputes in the automotive industry.
Benedikt studied law at the universities of Leipzig, Cologne and Seville. From early on in his legal education, he set his focus on Dispute Resolution. During his legal traineeship Benedikt has been working in the litigation practice of a commercial law firm in Cologne for several years, the German embassy in Namibia and in the litigation department of a multinational electronics and electrical engineering company in Munich. In addition to his German legal education, Benedikt obtained a Master Degree in Corporate and Commercial law (LL.M.) from the University of Auckland. Benedikt also takes on an active part in our Community Investment and Pro Bono Initiatives. He advises charitable associations and is part of a team developing integration-workshops for refugees.
