about the person

About me

I am fascinated by both the legal work and the development of software solutions that support the work of lawyers on both an organizational and professional level. The many years I have worked in both fields have enabled me to act as a “link” between professionals and software manufacturers in times of the ever increasing digitalisation of legal advice, and thus to be “mediator” and “interpreter” between both “worlds of thought” in the implementation of new digital processes and business models.

Software

Programming expertise

Within the context of my software programming in the legal consulting market, I have designed and developed industry-specific solutions in the form of case management solutions, crm applications, time and billing systems, software for data analysis and extraction and expert systems, either alone or as part of a team.
I have extensive knowledge of the following programming languages and development tools: C#, T-SQL, Javascript, Angular, Typescript, HTML, Office Addins (VSTO/Com/Web), Winforms, WPF, ASP.NET (Core) .

I have already been involved in the topic of “Digitalization of the legal market ” for several years with contributions and articles in professional journals and online publications (including JUVE, JA, Legal-tech-blog.de) and have most recently contributed a chapter in the English-language book “New Suits”, edited by Michele DeStefano and Guenter Dobrauz-Saldapenna, published in 2019 by Stämpli Verlag.

Presentations & Workshops

In recent years, I have given presentations on “Software developments in the legal market”, “Coding for lawyers” and “LegalTech in the USA & Europe” at the German Lawyers’ Conference, at the STP Autumn Conference, at Weblaw Bern and at the Schweitzer Zukunftsforum. In addition, I regularly design and lead workshops on these topics for law firms and legal departments of all sizes.
