JUVE handbook

Thomas Salomon is where your business is. In a world of specialisation and division of labour, success is the product of smart interaction along the value added chain. Thomas concentrates on drafting and negotiating agreements on distribution, supply and the provision of services, particularly in the consumer, food and life sciences industries. Thomas also covers regulatory aspects and stays at your side when competitors drag you into unfair competition litigation.

Thomas' career has spanned private and corporate practice and he is familiar with the requirements of corporate decision-making processes. Clients have thus lauded his business-mindedness and hands-on approach. 

Except for a period of three years, Thomas has been with the firm and its predecessor firms respectively since 1992 and became a partner in 2001. From 1996 to 1999 he was General Counsel of Fielmann AG, Hamburg. Thomas studied law at the universities of Hamburg and Geneva and received his LL.M. from the University of Illinois, United States. From 1988 to 1990 he was a research assistant at the Max-Planck-Institute for Foreign and International Private Law.
