I studied German law at the Albert-Ludwig University Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany. From 1995 until 1998, I attended the general legal training program for lawyers (Referendariat) in Offenburg, Germany. After completing my Referendariat, I was sworn in as a Rechtsanwältin in December 1998 and was employed by various law firms in Germany. In May 2007, I moved to the Netherlands and have since been employed by Bierens Debt Recovery Lawyers. B.V. as a German attorney at law. As of June 2010, I was also sworn in as a Dutch attorney at law.I have developed an expertise in international trade and transport law. My practice is international, and I advise on German-Dutch matters. Among other things, I am involved with conducting legal proceedings in Courts and Courts of Appeal in Germany, seizing assets and other measures of enforcement in Germany, advising in legal proceedings in the Netherlands, and evaluating and drafting contracts. In 2009, I successfully completed the Lehrgang as Fachanwalt für Transport- und Speditionsrecht.
