Lutz Auffenberg

German Attorney at Law, Certified Specialist for Banking and Capital Markets Law

Attorney Lutz Auffenberg heads WINHELLER's department of banking and finance law. His clients are financial institutions, including FinTechs and cryptocurrency startups, as well as high net-worth individuals, institutional investors and other investors. As a banking and finance lawyer, an important part of his day-to-day business are questions regarding regulations and required licenses for financial service providers (such as BaFin licenses). In that regards, his clients are mostly large corporations as well as small, newly minted FinTech startups. His expertise further includes the 'Zahlungsdiensteaufsichtsgesetz' (German law for payment providers).

In addition, Lutz Auffenberg represents his clients before courts in conflicts concerning civil law. Thanks to experience with proceedings of capital investment law, he can offer comprehensive regulatory and procedural support to his clients.

As an expert for the law of cryptocurrencies (incl. Blockchain), Lutz Auffenberg is internationally renowned. He regularly attends conferences in order to inform about the status of cryptocurrencies’ regulation. Furthermore, he represents our law firm in the global network Digital Finance Lawyers, a network of law firms specializing in FinTechs.

Moreover, Lutz Auffenberg advises companies regarding the issuance of corporate bonds, participation rights or subordinated loans for refinancing the capital market. He also provides support for creating and negotiating company agreements, trade agreements and loan agreements.

Lutz Auffenberg is in charge of the French Desk of our firm: He attends to our French-speaking clients in their mother tongue and is often consulted for granting legal services in French language even if a legal problem regards an area of expertise of one of his colleagues. He has a great number of contacts to colleagues in French-speaking countries, and is involved in the Belgian-German Lawyers Association.

Lutz Auffenberg studied law at Justus Liebig University, Giessen, Germany and Université de Liège, Belgium. For his further mandatory practical legal education he was employed by the Higher Regional Court Duesseldorf. Before his engagement at WINHELLER he worked for a traditional law firm in the field of business law in Duesseldorf and in the legal department of a big corporation in Hamburg.
