Donhauser Start-Up Consulting

Prevention instead of curation

"I solve legal problems before they arise, thus ensuring optimal growth and higher valuations! 

The legal system should be a support for you and secure growth instead of putting obstacles in your way. That's why, unlike many other consultants, I support by design. With a solution-oriented applied approach, combining relevant areas of law as well as my experience from top-level international law firms, I can provide you and your team with the advice you need to build your business."
