Anne Wenzelewski has been with Schirp & Partner since 2008 and has become a partner of the firm in 2015. As a specialist attorney for tax law, she devotes herself mainly to fiscal issues related to fund participation. In addition to this, one of her further focuses lies in capital market and company law. Here, attorney Wenzelewski represents harmed investors in life insurance and cases of closed end funds, such as real estate and shipping funds. Anne Wenzelewski can look back on both great judicial and extrajudicial successes:
As the competent lawyer in the law suits of the KGAL/ALCAS media funds vs those in charge of the prospectus, she was able to conclude out-of-court settlements for all of the approximately 500 investors represented by her, and could bring the actions in the interest of her clients to a very successful outcome. In the same year, a ruling of the German Federal Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof, file No. 2 ZR 136/11) was issued on the basis of an action which was implemented as a milestone for investor protection. The BGH has stated that shareholders of a fund are entitled to the publication of the names and addresses of their co-owners. The anonymity of the shareholders among themselves and their complete dependence on the management of the fund management could thus be broken.
Anne Wenzelewski completed her studies of law with a focus on company law at Freie Universität Berlin. She chose the stations of the legal clerkship at the Kammergericht Berlin in the area of company and capital market law.
