As a specialist lawyer for banking and capital market law, Thomas Kritter is particularly dealing with legal issues relating to loans and loan collateral. One of his main areas of expertise is the provision of advice and, where necessary, the conduct of litigation in the domestic and cross-border realization of loan claims and collateral. He has many years of practical experience in cross-border legal  issues, especially within the EU, with Switzerland, the USA and Canada. A further focus of his practice is private client work, especially the legal and practical support in domestic and cross-border estate cases.

In addition, he has been advising and representing leading companies in the wood-processing industry for many years in contractual matters as well as in court and arbitration proceedings. The focus of his advisory activities is on legal support in the procurement of individual production machines, complete lines up to entire plants for OSB, plywood or MDF / HDF panel production. In his experience, the key to a successful procurement process and project flow is to bring together technical, commercial and legal competence in an overall team right from the start of the project and the continuous close interlocking and coordination using state-of-the-art information technologies.
