In the spotlight

Here we introduce you to the people behind the names. Briefly and to the point. Our professionals are each asked three questions about their work, career and private life, and reveal to you what keeps them busy, fascinated and driven every day.

Katharina Hammer (Associate)

Katharina Hammer
What do you think is the most exciting topic on the market right now?

“How the various stakeholders deal with the issue of sustainability is particularly exciting because so much is at stake. The regulatory requirements for sustainability disclosure for financial products are growing faster than the corresponding demand from investors. The challenge is to do justice to highly complex interrelationships and at the same time find a practical implementation that benefits everyone.”

How did you come to POELLATH?

“Through a friend! I asked friends and acquaintances how satisfied they were in their current working environment and only considered law firms where I got a positive picture ‘from the inside’”

What would you say are your particular strengths?

“I rarely see things in black and white, I like to look at them from different angles. I can therefore empathize well with other people, their points of view and interests. At the same time, that doesn’t stop me from being decisive when it comes to difficult issues.”

Erik Muscheites (Counsel)

Erik Muscheites Querformat
What developments in your industry are you currently concerned about?

“The permanently increasing complexity and unfairness of the tax system. Real simplifications in the tax system are urgently needed, also to counteract a creeping undermining of legitimacy.”

What advice would you give to people starting their careers today?

“Decide on a profession and a specialization that really interests you from the heart. If that’s the case and you’re ‘on fire’ for your field, sooner or later you'll be successful professionally.”

What is a good work-life balance for you?

“When I can organize my working hours and my place of work as freely as possible. That gives me the opportunity to ‘reconcile’ as many challenges as possible.”
