  • Capital Market Law
  • Banking Law

As found­ing part­ner of the law firm Schirp & Part­ner, Dr. Wolfgang Schirp has been ded­ic­ated to the rep­res­ent­a­tion of harmed in­vestors since 1994 and has more than twenty years of ex­per­i­ence in lit­ig­a­tion and con­flict res­ol­u­tion. He is also the au­thor of nu­mer­ous pub­lic­a­tions on vari­ous is­sues of cap­ital mar­ket law. In par­tic­u­lar, the es­say “Aufklärung­sp­f­lichten bei in­ternen Pro­vi­sionsver­ein­bar­ungen”, pub­lished jointly with Oleg Mosgo (pub­lished in the Zeits­chrift für Bank und Kapit­al­mark­trecht – BKR 2002, 354), was cited in 2004 as an im­port­ant basis for the so-​called kick-​back jur­is­pru­dence of the Ger­man Fed­eral Court of Justice (Bundes­gericht­shof).

As a law­yer with the ad­di­tional qual­i­fic­a­tion as a law­yer for bank­ing and cap­ital mar­ket law, Dr. Schirp sees him­self as an at­tor­ney in the ser­vice of in­vestor pro­tec­tion and is in­volved – be­sides ju­di­cial rep­res­ent­a­tion of his cli­ents in dam­ages pro­ceed­ings – es­pe­cially in out-​of-​court cases such as share­holder and cred­itor meet­ings. Since 2012, Dr. Schirp has been reg­u­larly in­vited as an ex­pert on hear­ings of the Ger­man Fed­eral Crim­inal Po­lice Of­fice (Bundeskrim­in­alamt) re­gard­ing the re­search pro­ject “Pro­tec­tion against In­vest­ig­a­tion by Crim­inal Law”. Dr. Schirp is also a found­ing mem­ber of the Ak­tions­bund Akt­iver An­leger­s­chutz e.V., the largest in­vestor pro­tec­tion as­so­ci­ation for in­vestors of the gray cap­ital mar­ket.

Dr. Schirp stud­ied law at Kiel, Göt­tin­gen and Freiburg, fol­lowed by legal clerk­ship in Freiburg at the Higher Re­gional Court of the dis­trict of Karls­ruhe, with an in­ter­na­tional sta­tion in Brus­sels.
