«Finding the solution through questions»

Difficulties often lie somewhere completely different to where my clients initially suspect they are. That’s why openness is so important. By asking targeted questions I can gain an accurate grasp of the problem and the relevant legal context. Then it’s usually just a small step to all possible solutions.

Every case is different and deserves my undivided attention. It gives me pleasure to analyse the different factual and legal elements and to bring about a lasting solution for my clients – mostly SMEs and family offices. While the goal might be reached in some cases just with advisory support, other cases require my full support in court.

As varied as the legal profession is, what I really appreciate about my job is the freedom to organise myself and to pursue other interests outside of work as well. Regardless of whether it’s my foundation mandates, or my love of art and horses – everything I do, I do with passion.
