Dr. Benedikt Sudbrock

General Counsel


Benedikt is one of Germany’s most experienced in-house lawyers in venture capital. As Acton’s general counsel in every sense of the word, he finds a common ground even in most intractable situations.

Both Acton and portfolio companies benefit from his deep expertise in corporate law and his calm and courteous approach to finding a consensus.

Always quick to rethink and open to new perspectives, he is persistent when getting the grips of the problems, quickly devising sound solutions and sage advice.

Besides his German efficiency and determination in legal matters, Benedikt is a freethinker and overt enthusiast of all things Italian and Spanish.
