Problems often revolve around more or less the same issues, but the way in which parties deal with the challenges is different every time. This sparks my curiosity, and it is with great interest and an open mind that I uncover the reasons and motives underlying a case. The combination of law and the human aspects makes my work both varied and challenging.
As a construction-law lawyer, my clients include contractors, architects and project developers. I deal with issues that arise throughout the entire construction process, from land acquisition to actual construction, to solve problems and disputes. A swift solution benefits the parties, particularly in the construction sector. That is why I try to avoid going to court – something that costs a great deal of time and money – but if an agreement cannot be reached or there are too many obstacles, I will not shy away from legal proceedings.
I take a no-nonsense, realistic and pragmatic approach. Even if I do not have much concrete material to work with, I am always happy to advise my clients before a conflict arises. I put my creativity to good use in my work, searching enthusiastically for the best solution for my clients.
In my free time, I am fanatical about kickboxing. I enjoy challenging both myself and my opponent. I also like cooking. Fortunately, there is no arguing about taste.
