Christoph Engel-Bunsas

Trainee Lawyer
Always fully committed: On the opera stage and in legal practice.

Christoph Engel-Bunsas studied law at the Universities of Potsdam and Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense. After graduating in 2015, he moved to Switzerland to study singing at the Hochschule für Musik Basel. However, his enthusiasm for the world of law persisted. Therefore, following his studies in singing and alongside his work as an opera singer, he decided to work for a large legal database. This position gave him valuable insights into entrepreneurial thinking and the needs of lawyers. He has been working at Pontinova since 2023, initially as a legal researcher. Since January 2024, Christoph Engel-Bunsas has been serving as a trainee lawyer of the Haute École des Avocats Conseils de Versailles. He is particularly keen to incorporate his holistic approach and his experience in applying creative problem-solving approaches, such as design thinking, into his legal work and advice.
