The Legal 500 - Editors
Anna joined the The Legal 500 in 2012 as a researcher/writer for The Legal 500 Deutschland. After researching various practice areas not only in the German but also the US, EMEA and Latin American legal markets – making use of her bilingual German and English as well as advanced Spanish language skills –, she acted as Deputy Editor on the Legal 500 Deutschland for a year before being promoted to Editor of the German-language guide in 2015. Anna has spent a considerable amount of her time visiting firms and gaining extensive market knowledge across all major cities in Germany.
Before her career at The Legal 500, she spent some years in academic research: After an initial degree in Anthropology, she continued her academic studies with an MA in Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Cultural Studies and an MSc in Migration, Mobility and Development. At the same time, she completed internships at NGOs and an international think tank, and worked as a market and policy researcher for a research centre specialising in Japanese clients.
Outside of work she enjoys going to gigs and exhibitions, travelling when time allows and escaping into nature ever so often.
