About me

As a Legal Assistant, my everyday work entails providing in-depth analyses and comprehensive support to the firm’s Finance and Insurance Practice Group. Together with the team I am involved in advising banks, international financial institutions and corporate clients on a variety of intricate and notable financial transactions and regulatory matters. I aspire to contribute to clients’ business success by preparing custom-tailored legal advice.

Professional highlights

Banking & Finance experience. As a member of the Finance & Insurance team I assist in providing legal support for cross-border financial transactions, contribute to pre- and post-transaction legal due diligence, draft transactional documentation and instructions for corporate clients and such international financial institutions as the EBRD.

Academic qualifications. My major in economic law combined with a specialty in legal regulation of finance and lending enhances my analytical skills in the team’s core competency and helps to develop astute and perceptive solutions for our clients. Additionally I completed a Young ADR ICA Summer course to strengthen the international component of my professional qualifications in the commercial legal field.

Sorainen Student Academy regional management. Having formerly participated in the Sorainen Student Academy myself, I am currently in charge of organising and coordinating regional Memo and Moot Court assignments for all Sorainen offices.
