Attorney Philipp Hornung studied at the Faculty of Law and Economics of the University of Bayreuth. He completed his legal internship at the Higher Regional Court of Frankfurt am Main. As this practical training also involved stages at a medium-sized accounting firm and the fiscal authorities of Hesse, he was able to expand his knowledge in tax law during that period.

As of October 2019, he will pursue a master’s degree in tax sciences at the University of Münster.
