How Maximilian is building a better working world

“Being a good advisor means being a trusted advisor. I am dedicated to the deal and strive to provide leading-class legal advice, but most importantly I want to be at my clients’ side when they really need me, give them the undivided attention and enthusiasm they deserve and be the personal and trusted contact they need to close a deal. To meet EY clients’ expectation, EY teams strive to get better every day, be passionate about and have fun in what we do.”
