As a junior associate I focus mostly on commercial, employment and intellectual property matters. I advise on all aspects of commercial and employment issues to a client base ranging from start-ups to multinational listed companies. My aim is to gain a deep understanding of the complexity of the matter involved. With today's world being strongly connected with business and technology I believe that modern lawyers must broaden their expertise to cover more than just legal issues. I gained my experience working in an international company focusing on technologies in transport for two years, as well as working in the corporate environment, which helps me to see the client-lawyer relationship from both sides. I first started working at Bird & Bird as a paralegal during my university studies, and I am delighted to be continuing my career in this innovative law firm.
