After finishing an apprenticeship in construction Enrico Komning studied at the Ernst-Moritz-University in Greifswald. In 1997 he was working as a professor at the Business Academy Blieskastel and as a consultant for the Bureau to solve problems arising from the unlawful expropriation of assets by the GDR. During his lawyer’s training at the regional court in Rostock he was leading a team in business law at the ETL European Tax and Law Firm. To gain more insight on the other aspects of the law of corporate succession he took a training as a specialized solicitor in family law (at the Deutsche Anwaltakademie in 2003) and in law of succession (at the Justistische Fachseminare 2007) and is formally recognized as a specialist solicitor in family law since 2003. He has regularly took part in other lawyer’s trainings as well and has thus received a certificate by the German bar association on “quality by training”. From 2007 until 2009 he took training as a tax accountant by the Bildungsinstitut steuerberatender Berufe MV e.V. In 2012 he completed training as a specialist solicitor in copyright and media law.
