Interesting innovative energy projects often run into legal obstacles. I like to solve them or find a way around them. I look beyond borders: I also studied abroad and I can assist clients in environmental law as well.

Practice areas

  • Energy performance of buildings (EPB and EPC)
  • General and specific conditions of energy suppliers
  • Emission rights (ETS)
  • Environmental law


  • Secondment at an energy supplier
  • Drafting application for a recognition as a regulatory sandbox
  • Procedures on environmental permit applications
  • Arbitration procedure on emission rights
