Nicolas is experienced in corporate law with a broad practice covering both the creation and implementation of corporate structures including corporate housekeeping and M&A/corporate transactions. Additionally, he advises on financing, including clients in the financial services industry, particularly fintech and non-bank financial companies on regulatory matters, e.g. regarding ICOs/STOs, peer-to-peer-lending/crowdfunding, tokenization of securities and general blockchain/DLT-related topics.
He further serves domestic and foreign clients as an external in-house counsel and covers all areas of corporate housekeeping in Germany.
Nicolas routinely advises foreign clients in English in all of the above-mentioned areas. He is familiar with the special needs and demands of doing business across borders.
Nicolas read law in Mainz and Frankfurt am Main. He worked as a summer-associate with Linklaters LLP and, after finishing university, worked as a legal clerk (Rechtsreferendar) at Latham & Watkins LLP where he spent rotations in Latham’s Frankfurt and New York City offices. Following his admission to the German bar, he wrote his doctoral thesis on the topic of emerging efforts to regulate peer-to-peer lending platforms in Germany, the U.S. and the UK. He regularly publishes on the topic of fintech-regulation and online alternative finance.
Having finished his doctorate at EBS University of Business and Law in Wiesbaden, he joined Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP in Frankfurt where he advised international corporations and private equity funds on large and medium-sized M&A-transactions.
