Welcome Marina!

Marina Mertens joins WagArb as the first trainee advocate of the year 2021.

She studied law at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz. During her studies, Marina represented her university at the Willem C. Vis Commercial Arbitration Moot in HongKong and Vienna. Additionally, she obtained an LL.M. in International Law and Security from the University of Glasgow.

After her first state examination, Marina spent two years working at the German Federal Foreign Office in Berlin, where she was a desk officer in the division for troop deployment law, bilateral security agreements and diplomatic mission law.

Before beginning her traineeship in May of last year, she worked as a research assistant in the litigation department in the Berlin office at renowned German law firm Noerr LLP.

When she is not doing law, Marina enjoys playing the harp and listening to Indie Rock. She is also an independent film enthusiast and can’t wait to get back into Berlin’s movie scene when cinemas finally re-open.

We feel privileged to have Marina join our practice for the next nine months and look forward to working with her!
