Partner Interview

Ulrike Glück

∙ What will be the most important market trend affecting your clients’ sector over the next 12 months? ∙

China’s economy is close to reaching the status of a developed economy, with lower growth rates and an increasingly complex legal framework. With our specialisation and track record, we are well positioned to support both Chinese
and foreign companies to cope with these challenges.

∙ If you weren’t a lawyer, how would you earn your living? ∙

When advising on transactions and running the Shanghai office, I discovered my interest and talent for management. I think it would also have been fun to work in the finance department of a company and eventually become CFO.

∙ Why did you become a lawyer? ∙

The work of a lawyer offers a magnitude of opportunities and enables a combination of logical thinking, entrepreneurial responsibility, communication with clients and independence in work. In short, it is a highly self-determined, challenging, always interesting and, thus, highly satisfactory, working life.
