He has a strong track record advising German and international lenders on financing hotels and other operator-run properties. His client portfolio also includes private equity funds, credit funds, insurance companies and private sector companies. His international work is mainly concentrated on the USA, EU countries and Israel.

Axel joined CMS in 2003 and became a partner in 2010. In 2006, he was seconded to Bayerische Hypo- und Vereinsbank (now: UniCredit Bank AG) in London.
