I love my job: lawyer. Bread baker. Tax expert. Mountain walker. Lecturer.

With over 10 years experience as a tax expert (LL.M. in International Corporate Taxation, FH and lawyer lic. iur.): I have consistently focused on challenging national and international issues in tax law. Project management and project leadership within the scope of my management function and Head of Tax in a tax and management consulting firm complete my experience.

Interdisciplinary work, connecting clients within my broad network and holistic, individual advice are among my strengths.

I enjoy teaching the module Taxation of Self-Employed Persons as a private lecturer at the Kalaidos University of Applied Sciences.

In my free time, I am a dedicated mother of two, a passionate baker of bread and you can often find me out and about in the mountains, on foot and on skis.

I am direct, clear and respectful. Rigorous to say the least!

German. English. French. Spanish. I will be happy to advise you in these languages.

Attentive, transparent & committed

Taxation of spouses
in the international relationship
together with Petra Caminada
The taxation of spouses in an international relationship repeatedly leads to legal and assessment-related difficulties in practice.
