My path to Streck Mack Schwedhelm

It almost came to nothing. The appointment for my first interview foundered in a snowstorm on the way to Cologne. Coming from Göttingen, I was seeking a post as a lawyer after having completed my studies, doctorate and traineeship. But on Michael Streck’s insistence, it did come to a second appointment. My gut feeling – today one would say ‘intuition’ – told me that this was the right choice. And my intuition has proved right – so far for 30 years!
