How Cornelius is building a better working world
"In my work at EY, I focus on delivering top-quality legal services of a globally operating multidisciplinary practice. One of my aims is to address the increasingly complex legal and business challenges of our clients in innovative ways, realizing that technology and digitalization are playing increasingly important roles in how we provide exceptional client service.
On this route, impeccable performance is as much inspirational to me as EY’s unique culture of diversity and cross-border teaming, both of which make us stand out as a professional services provider and employer in the marketplace."
