I used to fence at the highest level, and went all out for victory. I now apply this fierce drive in my work as a lawyer, aided by smart, strategic planning. Success is seldom a coincidence.
I am dedicated to solving the problems facing entrepreneurs, and work with my clients to reach a good final result. I look further than just the legal aspects. Emotions, underlying interests and finances are formidable factors that also play a role, and are often more important than might be assumed at first sight.
I love complex challenges, solving puzzles and finding details that make all the difference, so that I can pleasantly surprise my clients with unexpected end results. Everything starts with listening carefully and remaining open and unbiased while examining the matter from every conceivable angle, so that no detail remains hidden. Deciding upon the correct strategy to reach the desired objective is then a matter of knowledge, experience and intuition.
Outside of my work, I am a big fan of science, technology, sport and history. All of these activities also contribute to my work, as knowledge is almost always a good counsellor.
