What distinguishes Petra as a lawyer is that she tries to answer the legal questions that are put to her in a creative, yet practical manner. Petra feels very comfortable in litigation practice and sees all proceedings – be it petition-initiated proceedings, a partial dispute or proceedings on the merits – as a challenge to achieve a good result.
In addition to medical liability, employer liability has Petra's special attention. Petra also advises and litigates in the field of traffic liability, qualitative liability and product liability. Petra does not shy away from disputes about the magnitude of a loss (and in particular causality). Petra also specialises in insurance law issues.
