Rechtsanwalt (attorney)

Prof. Andreas Meisterernst Managing Partner

Andreas Meisterernst, Rechtsanwalt (attorney) and bar-certified specialist for administrative law, was born in 1966 and has been practising law in Munich since 1995. He worked for five years in a regional law firm specialising in IT and administrative law. There he began his intensive litigation practice before the civil and administrative courts and increasingly focussed on consumer products. In early 2000, he co-founded the law firm meyer // meisterernst, and in 2003 mm science GmbH (now RDA Scientific Consultants GmbH). Finally, in January 2012, he founded Meisterernst Rechtsanwälte.

Andreas primarily advises and represents national and international companies from the food and consumer goods industry with regard to the entire regulatory framework, often in complex cases at the interface between law and science. His focus is on strategic aspects of product development, distribution in the EU including contract drafting, labelling and advertising with a particular focus on the impact of unfair commercial practices (e.g. health claims, green claims, law on unfair competition). He advises on internal risk management and corporate social responsibility in the value chain.

Andreas represents his clients before German courts, the European Court of Justice and in negotiations or application proceedings before German, foreign and European authorities e.g. in connection with novel food, product recalls or legal disputes with competitors.
