Dr Michael Weiß

Michael has more than thirteen years of experience in advising companies on M&A transactions with a focus on listed companies and public takeover law as well as on all issues related to corporate and capital markets law.

He also has extensive experience in advising on complex corporate restructurings, cross-border transactions and annual general meetings. One focus of his practice is advising financial institutions. Michael also regularly advises companies active in the technology sector and is therefore very familiar with the effects of digitisation on the business models of his clients.
