Who are you and what does a typical work
week look like for you?
Hi, I'm Daria.
As a part of our technology & digitalisation team, I get
clients on transactions, IP questions, data
protection and anything technology related. This means
that some of my days are filled with a variety of projects –
from big mergers and
acquisitions to complicated
software agreements. Depending on what is on my
desk, one day
might be packed with meetings and
calls, while another one is spent writing articles on AI
and discussing the latest tech trends with our team.
What is the best thing about your job?
It allows me to dive into topics and issues that I am
interested in the most – such as new
cybersecurity and data protection (to name a few) – and
combine them with
professional experience, to see how
they come together in practice.
What have been the most important milestones
in your professional life so far?
Discovering my niche in technology transactions was
definitely a milestone, and the GDPR entering
was a professional highlight, since it brought along
numerous exciting legal
challenges that we had the
opportunity to advise on.
What has been your greatest experience at
Schoenherr so far?
Meeting and working with remarkable lawyers from
other countries is always a great experience and
learning opportunity. To work in a law firm that unites
lawyers who are not only excellent
above all, outstanding personalities, feels very fulfilling
