I facilitate legitimate commercial activities for my clients, without fuss or delay.
As a corporate and commercial lawyer, with over 20 years’ experience both in private practice and in-house acquired both in the UK and Germany, and having advised extensively on emerging market investments and transactions (Middle East in particular), I am able to quickly assess and execute the commercial needs of my clients, aware of the demands put on them to satisfy the growth potential of their organisations and its products (whether nationally or internationally). I support my clients by the implementation of coherent and efficient structures and contracts for the task in hand with strong project execution skills.
