Who fights can lose. Who does not fight has already lost.– Berthold Brecht
In November, 1955 I was born in Hamburg. After graduating from secondary school, I started training as a bank clerk with the Vereins- und Westbank AG (HypoVereinsbank) and worked there for some years in different capacities.
In 1981, I began my legal studies at the University of Hamburg with a main focus on corporate tax law. I concluded my studies 1988 with the second state exam.
LICENSING AS A LAWYER
After having been licensed as a lawyer in 1988, I opened up my own practice as a lawyer in Hamburg.
FOUNDATION OF THE LAW FIRM
In 1993, I founded the law firm Friederici and Partner. My partners and I moved in 2003 into the Chile House within the Kontorhausviertel in Hamburg.
