Angelika is a dual-qualified Austrian counsel and English solicitor. She is a specialist in international, high-level economic crime investigations and large-scale commercial disputes.
As a multilingual lawyer, she has widely-recognised expertise in representing corporates and conglomerates in major projects and legal matters across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and United States.
Her comprehensive experience and thorough understanding of all aspects of white-collar crime have led to her successfully representing corporations in many notable multijurisdictional investigations and in some of the most complex commercial litigation. Her caseload has seen her advise clients ranging from international banks through to aerospace, steel, security and defence companies on matters involving bribery and corruption, fraud and other high-stakes, cross-border issues.
Angelika advises corporates on regulatory and compliance matters. She conducts internal investigations for clients to help them identify wrongdoing and then proposes the most appropriate course of action. She also assesses weaknesses in compliance programmes and devises new, strengthened programmes that meet the demands of clients’ multijurisdictional activities.
Angelika’s ability to work in many parts of the world and her network of international counterparts mean she is regularly sought by clients from around the globe to manage offensive asset tracing and recovery litigation. She also works in Rahman Ravelli’s highly-regarded cryptocurrency team.
Her work on cases involving environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues has seen her become one of the lawyers at the forefront of this developing area. She coordinates work for international conglomerates in this field; advising them on regulatory matters, producing staff training and compliance programmes and ensuring their worldwide activities are legally compliant. Angelika also supports NGO’s on issues such as human rights violations, war crime victims and modern slavery.
As part of Rahman Ravelli’s international sanctions team, Angelika assesses the potential impact of all relevant laws and export controls. She keeps up to speed with the rapidly-evolving rules and regulations to ensure clients adopt the correct approach and do not face the prospect of prosecution or financial penalty.
Angelika has been counsel for more than a decade at Austria’s top law firm and speaks English, German, Spanish and Arabic; which is an asset in many international cases.
