Dominik is a senior associate at Morrison & Foerster’s German office in Berlin. As a member of our Corporate and M&A Team, he primarily advises on private equity, M&A transactions, venture capital, and general corporate law, as well as on conversion law. He advises clients primarily in the areas of high tech and life sciences, as well as on real estate transactions.

His practice focuses on complex domestic and cross-border M&A transactions, joint ventures, investments in the area of emerging companies and venture capital, as well as on general corporate law issues (including corporate governance, restructuring, compliance, and internal investigations).

Dominik is particularly experienced in the fields of technology (IP/IT), life sciences and pharma, as well as real estate.

Before joining Morrison & Foerster in 2017, he worked on the core corporate/capital markets team of a large international ‘Magic Circle’ law firm, most recently as a principal associate, for nearly seven years. This combination of sound corporate law capability and business know-how distinguishes his practice.

Euromoney LMG has named Dominik as a “Rising Star” in Germany in its inaugural Europe Rising Stars Awards 2019. He was the only German lawyer with sole M&A/private equity focus to receive the recognition.

Dominik earned his doctor’s degree at the University of Regensburg and his Magister Juris at the University of Oxford. During his doctoral studies, he worked as a research assistant at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg.
