Dr Johannes Knop studied law at the University of Kiel (Germany) focusing on civil procedural law and obtained his doctorate on a insolvency law subject from the same university. He carried out his legal training at the Higher Regional Court of Schleswig-Holstein (Germany). During this legal training he worked for a law firm that specialised in insolvency law. He was admitted to the German Bar in 2015. He initially started to work for Luther and then subsequently worked for a boutique law firm in the area private equity/M&A. He returned to Luther in December 2018. In 2018 he gained the additional qualification of certified specialist in commercial and corporate law.
Dr Knop works for both German and international clients and advises listed and non-listed companies and their corporate bodies on commercially complex matters, which also partly include cross-border issues. He advises in and out of court both on corporate and capital markets law. The range of his court experience includes in particular shareholder disputes and enforcing D&O liability claims. A further significant focus of his work is accompanying private equity/M&A transactions as well as general meetings.
