About me

After my law studies, I spent a few months abroad before returning to Switzerland and starting my professional activity in the fiduciary sector. To supplement my education, I subsequently completed a degree in business administration. I am active in consulting with a focus on HR, labour law and social insurance, as well as data protection, contract law and inheritance law. In 2019 I left the private sector for the public sector, heading the legal department of the cantonal labour section. In March 2022, I returned to Fiduciaria Mega, where I am heading the legal advice team.
