In memory of Dr. H. Elizabeth Kroeger

On Tuesday, July 30, 2019, our colleague Liza Kroeger passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. We have lost a wonderful colleague who will remain in all our memories, thanks to her cheerfulness, professionalism and outstanding personality. All our sympathy goes to her family these days. Full notice 


Dr. H. Elizabeth (“Liza”) Kroeger, LL.M. (UC Berkeley) is admitted to practice in both Germany and the State of California. She brings with her a wealth of over 20 years experience in cross-border transactions, investments, financial planning and structuring. She has advised corporations in complex inbound investments to Germany in a breadth of industries in matters not only of corporate law and finance but in real estate and large infrastructure projects, such as power generation and airports, as well.

Liza also provides guidance to start-ups in structuring their corporate growth and raising capital from the early-stage phases to the growth financing level, all the way to the exit. She has advised as well in cases where the clients have pursued alternative strategies such as franchising, joint ventures, co-branding, licensing or mergers and acquisition exits.

From there it has been a natural step to counseling high net worth individuals and family offices in matters of wealth management, including business succession planning, asset protection, charitable planning and philanthropic management. Liza is a German Certified Stiftungsberater and sits on the board of a Canadian registered charity.

Liza’s training began with a Frankfurt-based German law firm known nationwide for its outstanding corporate practice and its pan-European client base. She then began her American corporate finance and mergers and acquisition training with Skadden in its Los Angeles, Frankfurt and New York offices, continuing her career at first as Of Counsel, then partner at Jones Day in its Frankfurt office and finally as partner with Weil, also in Frankfurt.

Several years ago she turned her attention to the administration of the estate of a family member. With that came the realization that she could now best bring her skills and training to bear in the specialty practices offered by WINHELLER.
