Carsten HeiseLawyer


»My fascination for commercial law, and especially for the interface between banking and law led me to choose the profession of a lawyer. I value dealing with new law topics, and enjoy working in interdisciplinary teams. While working on individual solutions I have the advantage of constantly available expertise exchange with my colleagues. I have a special passion for international cases, in which foreign laws have to be considered. My consultations are objective and are consistently focused on the interests of my clients. My working method is structured and always oriented to the optimal solution.«
