CV/Resume English (DOCX)
I am a UK qualified lawyer with a cross-border practice. Originally from a City of London law firm-based background, I now live and work in Berlin where I translate for my clients on a daily basis. I went into law after my languages degree and have worked across English, German and French from the outset of my practice. I primarily translate contracts, financial and accounting documents and court documents as well as general business correspondence. Owing to a spell of 5 years working on an automotive case, I also translate general engineering and automotive. I translate from a legal point of view - 100% accuracy of meaning is everything. In pursuit of my interest in languages and law I also act as Senior Consultant to the (Moscow) Pravo school of English legal drafting. 
Keywords: Legal, contracts, financial, accounting, policy.
