Attorney, Partner, Specialized lawyer for banking and capital investment law, commercial and company law

  • Capital Investment Law
  • Company Law
  • Insolvency Law

Since 2003, Dr. Susanne Schmidt-​Morsbach has been a mem­ber of Schirp & Part­ner and be­came a part­ner in 2014. Her pro­fes­sional fo­cus is on cap­ital in­vest­ment, com­pany and in­solv­ency law. In ad­di­tion to her qual­i­fic­a­tion as a spe­cial­ist at­tor­ney for bank and cap­ital mar­ket law, Dr. Schmidt-​Morsbach holds the title of spe­cial­ist at­tor­ney for com­mer­cial and com­pany law and works in the spe­cial­ist com­mit­tee of the law­yers’ cham­ber. Within the last few years, she has been in­volved in the suc­cess­ful re­or­gan­iz­a­tion of many closed-​end funds and has thus been able to avert sub­stan­tial losses from in­vestors. She has a wide range of ad­vis­ory man­dates and has been able to gather ex­per­i­ence as a pro­sec­utor in hun­dreds of court cases. Dr. Schmidt-​Morsbach was of­ten elec­ted as joint rep­res­ent­at­ive of bond hold­ers. In 2015, Dr. Schmidt-​Morsbach, to­gether with pro­fes­sional col­leagues, foun­ded the VGVD, the Verb­and Ge­mein­samer Ver­treter Deutsch­land e.V., of which she has also been the chair since then. This first pro­fes­sional as­so­ci­ation of joint rep­res­ent­at­ives serves in­terests rep­res­ent­a­tion, fur­ther edu­ca­tion and qual­ity as­sur­ance.

Dr. Schmidt-​Morsbach gained her first pro­fes­sional ex­per­i­ence as a con­sult­ant in a large Ger­man con­sult­ing com­pany. Prior to her ad­mis­sion to the bar in 2000, she was a doc­toral fel­low at the Chair of Com­mer­cial and Com­pany Law and In­sur­ance Law at Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin. In ad­di­tion to law, Dr. Schmidt-​Morsbach stud­ied eco­nom­ics at Freie Uni­versität Ber­lin, at Albert-​Ludwig-​Universität in Freiburg and at Uni­versité Stend­hal in Gren­oble, where she gradu­ated with the Diplôme de Droit Français. She com­pleted her legal clerk­ship with sta­tions in Ber­lin and Lübeck at the tax of­fice and the fiscal court as well as at con­sult­ing co­por­ate law firms.

Dr. Schmidt-​Morsbach has pub­lished nu­mer­ous art­icles in pro­fes­sional journ­als on in­sur­ance and com­pany law, is co-​author of the “Ber­liner Kom­mentar zum Ver­sicher­ungs­ver­trag­s­recht” and reg­u­larly holds lec­tures on in­sur­ance, com­mer­cial and com­pany law.
