What if navigating the rules was easy?


I make it easy for you.
As External General Counsel, I provide entrepreneurs and their ventures with high-quality legal advice. Pragmatic, reliable and cost efficient.
Based on 10+ years of experience in first-class legal teams in the US, UK and Europe. 

Ongoing Legal Support

Not every business needs an in-house lawyer. But every business needs an adviser experienced in guiding it through the legal questions that arise in daily business

As External General Counsel, I accompany your venture over time, understand your business model and competitive environment, and provide you with pragmatic, business-minded yet legally sound solutions to your day-to-day legal needs.

Years of experience as in-house counsel and at leading international law firms have given me a deep understanding of the areas of the law most relevant to doing business, including commercial contracts, corporate law, regulatory compliance and data privacy, dispute resolution and others. Where other specialist advice (for example on tax or court litigation) is needed, I help you identify, engage and manage the specialist who best meets your needs.

Commercial Contracts

Some contracts are too important to improvise.

A well drafted contract does not have to be long or written in incomprehensible legalese - quite the contrary.

With years of experience in negotiating and drafting contracts I can support you in thoroughly analyzing all parties' interests, negotiating the best possible outcome for you, and ensuring that your agreement is reflected in clear and concise language. 

This helps to avoid "gaps" in the contract and to anticipate and mitigate risks in the future.

Corporate Set-up and Transactions

As corporate attorney I help you identify and implement the most suitable corporate set up for your business in consultation with tax advisers and other professional service providers which I can help you find within or outside of my extensive professional network.

Based on years of experience negotiating complex transactions at some of the world's leading law firms I also support you in structuring and negotiating your corporate transaction in a way that safeguards your interests and achieves your business goals. Transactions I advise on include corporate acquisitions, sales, joint ventures and other corporate transactions. 

Regulatory Compliance

Many businesses are subject to various regulatory compliance requirements, including consumer protection laws and data privacy regulations. 

My experience advising businesses from various industries on B2C matters has equipped me with the knowledge and skills necessary to address such regulatory requirements and find pragmatic and legally sound solutions based on your venture’s business model.

Dispute Resolution

Where contractual disputes arise, I help you to identify all options at hand, analyze them under economic and other relevant aspects, and implement them through negotiation or instruction of litigation counsel.

Often, reaching an amicable settlement out of court is the most economical solution and an experienced contract negotiator can help you achieve this.

International Expansion

I support your business in its international expansion. This includes advice on market entry, cross-border transactions and international dispute resolution

Many years of living and working in the U.S., U.K., Germany, France and Spain have taught me fluency in languages and cultures and resulted in a far-reaching international network.

I have negotiated cross-border corporate transactions, commercial contracts and dispute settlements with parties from the U.S., U.K., and many European countries including Germany, France and Spain, and I'm well versed in international contexts and aware of the role cultural differences play in deal making.
