After finishing grammar school (Gymnasium) at the Sankt Thomas Kolleg in Vechta, Germany, in 2008, Maximilian Gaber studied European and International Law at the European Law School of Maastricht University. After graduation from the bachelor course, Gaber acquired the LL.M. in Dutch law at Maastricht University.
Because of the originality of his master thesis (‘The effect of D&O insurance on managerial risk taking’), Gaber was admitted to the PhD/doctor programme under the supervision of Prof. Michael Faure. Next to researching for his PhD, Gaber worked as a legal counsel at the law firm RESOR NV in Amsterdam, which is specialized in corporate restructuring and insolvencies.
