What is the best way to stay connected to the issues that affect your clients?

I am in touch with clients regularly via email, calls or face-to-face meetings. Additionally, online news allows me to stay on top of any issues relevant to their business.

What was the most interesting cross-border, cross-discipline project that you were involved in?

We worked on a major transaction regarding the transfer / sale of non-performing loans (NPLs), as part of a banking / finance project. We were also involved in the acquisition of one of the largest media groups in CEE as part of an M&A project.

FaceTime or face-to-face?

FaceTime as well as face-to-face meetings in my opinion are the best way to connect with the client. This allows me to seek clarification from clients directly, as well as to connect with them and get to know them in person rather than purely via emails.
