What I do - differently...

I help you moving your business ahead by unveiling the magic of legal advice. Making the complicated legal issues an understandable subject with a clear and clean business oriented advice is the asset I strive to provide.
What’s the difference?

You might ask for legal advice and receive a bulk of disclaimers, things you can’t do, are not allowed to do, shouldn’t do. Why not combining the result of the legal analysis with the next step – insight in what you CAN DO? I’m happy to get things done by not distracting your business.

What else?

Providing legal support and a precise advice isn’t always that easy. But while putting our heads together and getting a deeper understanding of both ends of the challenge definitely helps solving the biggest issues way easier.

And finally?

A business minded attitude doesn’t necessarily mean that I’d like to understand YOUR business but business in GENERAL – I also need enthusiasm to understand YOUR technology and approach.
