Patrick is a German attorney at law ('deutscher Rechtsanwalt') dual-qualified in both the common law and civil law traditions and with almost twenty years' professional experience in law. He practises international arbitration as counsel ('Prozessvertreter'), arbitrator ('Schiedsrichter') or official legal expert/expert witness ('Sachverständiger'). He also has extensive experience in corporate, commercial and IT law. As a foreign practitioner Patrick has the distinction of being admitted to practise Singapore law. He is a member of the panel of arbitrators of the Chinese Arbitration Association, Taipei (CAA), of the Thailand Arbitration Center (THAC) and of the Indian Institute of Arbitration & Mediation (IIAM). Further, he is listed as an arbitrator by the Vienna International Arbitration Centre (VIAC) and the Arbitration and Mediation Center of the Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MARC). Patrick is a fellow of the Asian Institute of Alternative Dispute Resolution (FAIADR) and a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (MCIArb), the Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA), the German Institution of Arbitration (Deutsche Institution fur Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit e.

The rest is yoga.
