Why did you become a lawyer?

It was a natural DNA choice, as I come from the family of lawyers.

Who had the biggest influence on your career?

One of the founding partners of Arendt.

What is your proudest professional moment?

When a junior member of the team prepares a document on which you have no comments.

What is the most unusual or shocking request you've ever had from a client?

I have assisted one of my private clients unblocking funds which were dedicated to charity (payment for a unique urgent surgery for a child). Its one of the rare cases where you had a deadline which is important for life.

What would you do if you weren't a lawyer?

I would play tennis.
