Erik represents clients before state courts, arbitral tribunals and government agencies. He handles banking and finance litigations as well as corporate disputes (including stock corporation law proceedings, directors’ liability and M&A disputes), often with a cross-border element.

Erik has extensive experience with large-scale internal and administratively imposed investigations in the financial industry and other industries. He was seconded to the Litigation and Regulatory Enforcement team of a leading international bank in Frankfurt and closely monitors the increasing nexus between regulatory and contentious issues in the financial sector.

Erik advises financial institutions, insurance companies and private equity investors as well as clients from a wide variety of industries.

Erik is recognised by leading legal directories: The Legal 500 German language version singles Erik out as ‘name of the next generation’ for financial litigation. JUVE’s Handbook Commercial Law Firms in Germany lists him as "frequently recommended" for litigation, citing others who describe Erik as a “lightning-quick strategist” (JUVE Handbook 2017), “creative, highly professional” and someone who “has full control over the proceedings” (JUVE Handbook 2018).
