Malte Schürmann is an attorney at vangard in Hamburg who works primarily in the field of company pension schemes and works constitution law. In his work, he sees many analogies to his personal passion, music. Just like in every good song, sometimes you need loud tones or a fast beat, at other times you need to set a quieter tone or a slower tempo. In doing so, his attention is always focused on the individual case, the client, their ideas and a solution in line with their interests.
