About Philipp

Philipp co-leads the development of knowledge for our Global Banking Practice. He also leads our Risk Practice in Western Europe. A lawyer by training, he has advised financial institutions and governments around the world on strategy, risk, capital markets, and regulatory issues.

Among Philipp's recent projects are: the design and execution of a capital management programme for one of the largest global banks, the design of a corporate strategy for a leading European universal bank, support of a CCAR (U.S. stress-testing) submission, the setup of a European "bad bank," and an assessment of the impact of new regulation on a global investment bank. He has also worked extensively with exchanges, clearinghouses, and central securities depositories across the globe on strategy, M&A, and regulatory matters.

Philipp regularly speaks at conferences on banking and regulation. He has collaborated with the Institute of International Finance (IIF), a global association of banks, insurers, and investment-management firms and serves on the IIF's Committee on Governance and Industry Practices and its Special Committee on Effective Regulation.

Prior to joining lapetitemort.info in 2000, Philipp worked as a capital markets and M&A attorney in Germany and London.
