In every issue of our newsletter we introduce people from our firm personally. This time it is the turn of Max Fahr from our Freiburg office.

Max Fahr, born in 1987, grew up in the town of Offenburg in South-West Germany in a "family of lawyers" and got to know the exciting sides of legal professions early on. After graduating from high school, he therefore decided to study law at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg and the Università degli Studi di Roma, La Sapienza. He soon discovered his preference for employment law, which was the main focus of his studies. At the same time, Max worked as a student assistant at the Institute for Labor Law at the University of Freiburg. He moved to Italy because of his enthusiasm for foreign languages and his wish to expand his repertoire, which had previously consisted of English, French and Spanish. Even after his first state examination, he remained true to his native region and his enthusiasm for Italy and completed his legal clerkship at the Regional Court of Offenburg with internships in medium-sized law firms in Freiburg and Milan.

Max was admitted to the bar in May 2015 and initially worked as Rechtsanwalt in a law firm in Freiburg, mainly in labor law, but also in commercial and general civil law. Since October 2017, he has joined the labor law team around Stefan Daub, Christoph Fingerle and Stephanie Mayer at Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner in Freiburg and advises and represents domestic and foreign clients in all areas of individual and collective labor law. In addition to Meike Kapp-Schwoerer and Sven Ufe Tjarks, he is also part of the Italian Desk of Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner.

In his free time, Max enjoys the advantages of the border triangle of Germany, France and Switzerland together with the South German-Italian "dolce vita" and plunges into near and far, familiar and foreign cultures.
