Principled, Organized, Detail-Oriented.

Choosing the right lawyer is always a matter of trust, but what sets a great lawyer apart? The most important criteria include professional expertise, a deep understanding of the legal environment in the country where you do business and a disciplined and structured method of working. As a lawyer with several years of professional experience in Germany and Colombia, I meet precisely these requirements. On a more personal level, I stand out for being frank and honest.

I was born in Hamburg, Germany and grew up near Lake Constance. After studying Law at the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich, I honed my professional skills working in various capacities throughout Europe and Latin America. I moved to Colombia in 2013 and have been working as an independent lawyer in the city of Medellín (capital of the Department of Antioquia) since 2016.

Christoph Möller, LL.M.

> Strengths

I have a strong understanding of linguistics, and I speak five languages: German, Spanish, English, Portuguese and French. I know the Colombian market and the local customs. I am known for my solid academic background, structured and goal-oriented work style, as well as for having timely, clear, confident and trustworthy communication with my clients.

> Mobility

In addition to having a client base in the greater Medellín area, I take on business throughout Colombia. I work regularly in Bogotá, the coffee-growing region (especially Pereira), Cali, Bucaramanga, and the Caribbean Coast including Cartagena, Barranquilla, and Santa Marta.

> Fees

I use several different fee schedules for my legal services, such as hourly billing, tailor-made offers based on individual needs or performance-based fees. I also offer advisory services and long-term support with fixed rates for businesses.
