What I think:

If life deals you lemons make lemonade!

„My approach is straightforward.”

Embarking on my legal career was a twist of fate. Initially drawn to architecture or politics, an internship at the Lower Saxony State Parliament shifted my focus towards the law, a field that to my own surprise captured my interest and creativity. I joined the legal profession in 2015 after studying and training law across Europe, Western Africa and the Middle East. Ever since, I’ve embraced challenges with a distinct mix of courage, speed, and negotiation skills.

My approach is straightforward: I’m known for my ability to quickly analyze complex legal issues, negotiate fiercely on behalf of my clients, and craft creative, efficient solutions. This combination of strengths and skill has made me a go-to lawyer for complex and unconventional cases that demand innovative thinking and a bold approach.

I’m most productive after a session of yoga or a swim in the morning, transforming blank pages into strategic plans with fresh energy. Whether it’s in a brainstorming session with colleagues, ascending a steep peak or during a solitary hike, my best ideas come when I’m engaged and a new and unprecedented case sparks my curiosity.

My colleagues might joke about feeling relieve from my challenging questions when I’m not around, but it’s my relentless drive and dedication to solving tough problems that truly define my role in the team. I’m drawn to assignments that are as unique as they are complex, where I can leverage my skills to achieve the best outcomes for clients who value creativity, trust, and a bit of daring.

In essence, my legal practice is more than just a job; it’s a continuous journey of dedication, problem-solving and pushing boundaries. I strive to make a real difference for my clients, bringing my unique set of skills to the task to deliver not only legal solutions, but innovation and genuine value.
