Ulrich is a German qualified Partner, advising his clients in all aspects of privacy and data protection law. He is a well-known expert in this area in the German legal market and abroad.
In 2015, Legal 500 noted Ulrich as “having both, a solid knowledge of IT law and a pragmatic approach.” He is regularly recommended by German legal magazine JUVE as data privacy specialist with “excellent contacts to the supervisory authorities” and a “pragmatic and creative approach”.
Ulrich advises some of the world’s leading companies on the adoption of global privacy strategies. He acts for a number of international technology companies, including well-known online businesses and platforms as well as digital marketing companies. With a proven track record of more than 13 years in data privacy matters, he brings a wealth of experience in dealing with EU and German data protection regulators. Ulrich’s current focus are international data transfers, outsourcing and cloud as well as data-driven business models.
Ulrich joined Osborne Clarke in 2009, after having worked for seven years with the U.S. law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. Due to several long-term secondments in the legal departments of various clients (including Amazon), he also understands the in-house perspective and, thus, delivers practical, hand-on advice.
He holds an LL.M. degree from King’s College London. He frequently speaks and publishes on data privacy related matters. He is the author of the first book on the German market dealing with the legal aspects of mobile apps and co-authored a number of other standard books.
