I studied law in Germany (1. und 2. Staatsexamen) and spent 6 years working as a lawyer for international law firms in Spain, where I currently live. During my studies I learned several languages and studied US and UK common law besides German law. As a lawyer I worked with international clients and prepared legal documents in English, Spanish and German. I am familiar with the Spanish legal system and the German legal system as well as its respective language.
I graduated high school in the US and Germany and am part of the international community in Madrid, so I use both Spanish and English on a daily basis, although German is the native language I grew up with. All three languages are part of my everyday private and professional life.
I am a legal translator since 2013/2014 and focus solely on legal content, as I feel I can provide added value due to my legal expertise in addition to my language skills.
