About me

As an associate on the Dispute Resolution and Risk Management team, I help my colleagues so they are able to offer quality law service based on our clients’ needs. I mainly provide consultation to my team regarding public procurement topics.

Professional highlights

Public procurement. My previous experience is mainly related to the field of public procurement, which I have practised for over seven years now and which continues to be of great interest to me.

My first contact with public procurements was at the Ministry of Justice, where as a public procurement specialist, my task was to prepare and conduct public procurements by the Ministry of Justice and authorities in its area of government, as well as formalising the relevant documentation. I also drew up the contracts needed to conclude the public procurements, and advised the institutions I served.

Clear communication. For the four years immediately before joining Sorainen, I worked at the Department of Public Procurement and State Aid at the Ministry of Finance, where my task was to advise individuals on the interpretation of the Public Procurement Act, both by e-mail and phone. In addition, I prepared summaries of case law and updated the Frequently Asked Questions section, so that the interpretation of the Public Procurement Act was easier.

In my work, I consider good teamwork and clear communication with both clients and colleagues to be important, so that clients receive help that meets their needs.

Expanding my knowledge. I am also fascinated by tax law. As this is an interesting and versatile field, it is definitely one of the areas in which I would like to challenge myself in the near future.

Although, due to my previous work experience, I feel most at home in administrative law, I value continuous development and the acquisition of new knowledge, which is why I hope to deal more with civil law in the future.
