In the course of her practice, Katharina Klingel specializes in contract drafting in international commercial law, corporate transactions and representation in cross-border disputes before state courts and arbitral tribunals (including cross-border enforcement).
As a member of Brödermann Jahn's French Desk, Katharina Klingel also deals in depth with issues of German-French legal relations. She advises German clients on drafting contracts with business partners from French-speaking countries as well as French-speaking clients who are or want to become active in Germany.
She pursued her enthusiasm for looking beyond national borders and for cross-border issues already during her studies by participating in the German-French study program at the University of Potsdam and a two-year study visit to Paris. While working on her doctoral thesis on German, French and European suretyship law, she worked as a research assistant at the Chair of Civil Law, Private International and Procedural Law and Comparative Law at the University of Potsdam.
