He specialises in insurance and liability law. As a certified specialist in insurance law, Christian provides advice on all types of industrial insurances (including technical insurance, product liability insurance, D&O insurance). In liability cases, Christian supports clients both in the assertion of claims against the injuring party as well as in the defence against payment claims.
