A large part of my family are entrepreneurs. From an early age I learned and saw how entrepreneurs think and what is important to them. Perseverance and integrity are important to me. I am someone who listens and asks questions to get to the core of the dispute before jumping in. I believe you cannot do the job correctly without diligent preparation. I get energy from working together and solving complex cases. I assist municipalities and entrepreneurs. My attraction to these target groups is the reason why I mainly focus on administrative law.
