Dr. Jana Schott

“I have dreamt about becoming a lawyer since I was a child. This focus means that I pursue my profession with passion, excitement and creativity; emotions that form a key element of my relationship to our clients. My most important reward is gaining your trust.”

Jana is one of the founding partners at AQUAN Rechtsanwälte. Before she joined the firm, she spent two years working as an attorney-at-law in a team run by Urs Breitsprecher.

Jana obtained her first state exam at the University of Münster, Germany in 2011, and her second state exam at the higher regional court of Düsseldorf in 2016. She received her Doctorate in Law (Dr. jur.) in 2015 at the University of Münster after working for five years as a research assistant at the Centre for European Private Law at the University of Münster. Jana began practicing law as qualified attorney-at-law (Rechtsanwältin) in 2016.

She has significant international experience working on a range of cross-border M&A transactions. Further to this, she has spent considerable periods abroad, completing research studies in Paris for her doctoral thesis, and a legal clerkship at the German Embassy in Iceland.

Her legal expertise is focused on company law, M&A, trade law and contract law and she represents clients in Germany and internationally. These clients range from start-ups to family-owned businesses, and private equity firms.
