About us


“Boss“: Thomas Look

Born in 1963, Thomas migrated from the Rhineland to Berlin in 1982 and studied Economics and Social History, Journalism and American Studies at the FU Berlin. And this at a time (1982 – 1988) when finalising studies was not yet so important and Berlin was a divided city.

As a proven fan of Borussia Mönchengladbach, he knows what is above and below. As a lover of 70's “Prog-Rock”, he knows what it's more like to love something that's complete “out”. And as a skater, he knows how long a marathon course really is and how big the difference between effort and result can be.

Thomas started Ligalive.net in 2015. His profile can be found at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomaslook/. He can be reached at look@closelook.de.
