Lutz works out of our Munich office but is well connected in our global network. He is not only the head of our German practice group Corporate/M&A and of our German corporate compliance team, but is also co-leader of our global life sciences transactions team and member of our global life sciences industry sector team. Lutz' first case in 1993 was a life sciences case and he has worked for life sciences clients ever since. His deep and long-standing life sciences industry experience is instrumental for closing your life sciences deals successfully and the reason why he was awarded the title "Life Sciences Star" by the Legal Media Group.

Lutz started his career as a research assistant to renowned corporate law Professor Karsten Schmidt at the University of Hamburg. During this time, Lutz became a cutting-edge corporate lawyer. He is bi-cultural because he lived for more than one year in the US, has a Master of Laws from the University of Virginia and many of his clients are also from the US. Lutz is a member of the German-American Lawyers Association and of the German Corporate Law Association and publishes regularly. Among other achievements, he is co-editor and co-author of the first commentary on the German Takeover Act as well as co-author of the handbook Transatlantic Mergers and Acquisitions.
