Brief interview:

1.Do you see any alternatives of your current occupation? If you have a chance to be engaged in something else, what will you choose?

When I was a child, I studied in the Academy of Arts and I was convinced that my profession would be connected with the art. I can say that my child’s dream has come true, as the intellectual property is directly connected with artistic people, and the lawyer’s occupation requires creative and individual approach to each particular case. I like my job, and currently I see no alternative.

2. What does bring a pleasure in the lawyer’s work?

Searching for solutions in challenging and exceptional situations.

3. What is the greatest person you would like to meet with?

It would be interesting to speak to Elon Musk.

4. What is your motto? Do you have one?

A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. (Walter Bagehot).

5. What place would you like to visit, if you find the time machine and why?

I like to live here and now, I would not travel through time, as could miss a lot of interesting for that period, currently happen in my life.
