In-house Lawyer, large international law firm

“Barbara provided effective legal advice to close a good deal for me – and on top of that I see her as a seasoned negotiator who I fully trust through some tough and high-stake negotiations. She developed the best tailored legal strategy and I would absolutely call her again for any future labor law related issues. I recommend her to all my friends and colleagues.”

Expat, international company in health technology

“Barbara was a critical component in our successful arrival at an agreement position. We entered mediation far apart in positions, and within a relatively short time, arrived at an agreement that was remarkably easy for both parties to sign up to. Barbara leveraged her useful set of skills – across mediation and legal – to create a path through the issues that we could choose to follow. Barbara was a great blend of professional and personal, a strong but light-touch mediator, very true to the process but very focused on reaching an outcome. I gladly recommend her to other managers or companies.”
