«Applying knowledge usefully»

My profession is always mentally stimulating, and I like that. On the one hand, the legal profession is a trade that you have to learn from the ground up. On the other hand, in practice, there are a lot of unanswered questions. In my day-to-day work with national and international clients, I am constantly faced with new challenges that call for flexible thinking and superior powers of deduction.

Being a mother tongue Russian speaker brings me into direct contact with clients. This is an important factor for success because, although we are addressing legal issues, it often comes down to communication. Transparency and fairness are only possible if I clearly communicate what is, and what is not, legal – especially for clients from a different cultural background.

Working in the areas of compliance and corporate law opens the world up to me in all its diversity of human interests and skills, business ideas, and entrepreneurial constructs. Not only does this broaden my professional experience, it also fascinates me on a personal level. At the end of every abstract examination of the subject, there is a tangible result.
