About Me

I am an associate in our Frankfurt office and Finance & Financial Regulation Group, advising major international banks, financial institutions and corporations on banking and finance law.

I have particular focus on asset finance. Acting on behalf of our clients in aviation, rail and banking, I provide advice on asset finance deals including operating lease structures, asset acquisitions and secured debt financings.

I am qualified to practice law in Germany and the Russian Federation. Before joining our firm in 2013, I worked at another international law firm in Frankfurt, focusing on banking and finance.
