Bettina-Axenia Bugus started her legal career at Ahner & Schwarz in 2002 and was co-founder of Bugus & Roloff Rechtsanwälte in 2005. She joined Brehm & v. Moers as a partner in 2008.

“We are gaining an experienced peer in Bettina-Axenia Bugus, whose profile at the interface of labor law and media law is an excellent fit with the professional focus of SKW Schwarz,” said Dr. Martin Greßlin, Head of the Employment Law Department. “Our nationwide operating employment law practice works in close collaboration with other areas of the firm, such as Corporate/M&A, IT, and Media Law.”

SKW Schwarz’s Employment Law department comprises twelve lawyers at the Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, and Munich office, who are particularly advising media firms, such as publishing and production companies, artists, and advertising agencies, in addition to many other industries. In media law, the firm has been the leading address in Germany for many years. It was recently recognized as “Law Firm of the Year Media & Technology” at the 2016 JUVE Awards.
