Summary


I am a lawyer who combines versatile expertise with a practical, solution-oriented mindset. My legal background is diverse, with a particular focus on the energy market and regulation, commercial contracts and legal support related to various industrial and infrastructure projects.

I have worked as a senior in-house counsel at an international engineering firm in an essential part of their business operations as well as in the public and third sector, focusing primarily on energy market regulation. I possess strong skills in drafting and negotiating complex commercial contracts and the ability to solve legal problems faced by companies in their daily operations.

I know that legal challenges are not isolated; they comprise an integral part of the company’s goals and operations. My approach is simple, yet impactful: prioritize the business and identify practical solutions. I assist our clients in matters related to industrial and infrastructure projects, energy markets, commercial contracts, and claims.

However, legal knowledge and professional experience is only one side of the coin. I believe that effective and open communication, as well as trust are the cornerstones of a successful client relationship. My genuine enjoyment and interest in supporting business operations is evident and generates a positive impact for the business.
