With 10 years experience in the field of international dispute resolution (both as counsel and arbitrator), I represented clients before major arbitral institutions and national courts. My focus lies in finding pragmatic solutions for my clients and resolve disputes in the most efficient manner. I have a vast experience in complex cross-border contractual disputes and gained additional knowledge in data protection, art law, patent law, IP and technology over the years. I regularly advise clients from the pharma, MedTech, FemTech, art, technology, renewable energy, semi-conductor and luxury sector. I am Swiss qualified and speak English, German and French fluently.
