What was your most complex case?

Perhaps providing legal advice for the movie “The Name of the Rose,” for which I was retained as a very young lawyer by Bernd Eichinger (Constantin Film). At that time, the international production and financing business in Germany was hardly developed. We had to deal with experienced UK and US attorneys, Dutch banks, and French and Italian co-producers. This was exciting and instructive, but there was certainly some anxiety involved.
