After graduating from the universities of Cologne and Paris, Matthias passed both bar exams in Germany and started his career as a lawyer specialized in Mergers & Acquisitions in a German law firm. He was involved in national and international mergers and negotiations of international agreements. His desire to have more exposure to international matters brought him to Luxembourg where he worked for more than 2.5 years in a leading law firm in the fund structuring team before joining T.
