What I think:

Life is a one-time offer

„Creativity in problem-solving and a knack for simplifying complex legal matters”

If you ask me about my journey in law, I’d say it’s a blend of calm oversight and a passion for simplicity. As a lawyer, I’ve always strived to steer clear of legal jargon, opting instead for a language that’s accessible to everyone. This approach has been a cornerstone of my career from day one.

Creativity in problem-solving and a knack for simplifying complex legal matters set me apart. I’m the go-to person for commercial lease law queries and complex property transactions. I thrive on being involved in significant real estate projects, where I can later witness the impact of my work. Colleagues value my ability to handle clients needing extra guidance.

If I hadn’t become a lawyer, I would have been a teacher, drawn to working with children. This passion was evident during my year as an Au Pair in the USA, a time still close to my heart. However, the intellectual challenges and opportunities in law won me over. It’s a field that satisfies my love for argumentation and problem-solving.

My happy place is New Zealand, its stunning landscapes once inspired me to take a career break. At NEON, the friendly, grounded atmosphere among colleagues enhances my work life. My team appreciates my humor, calm demeanor, and meticulous work ethic.
