She combines a deep and broad understanding of banking and finance transactions with a keen eye for the context in which our clients operate. The feedback we receive from our clients underlines Marleen’s excellent ability to deliver pragmatic high-quality advice while overseeing the process and timing. The strong position of our Finance practice is enhanced further by her appointment to partner.
