Attorney-at-law Mari Matjus’s experience in the field of data protection, healthcare and competition law allows NOVE’s customers to prevent disputes. Mari focuses on the rules governing the activities of an entrepreneur and her timely and accurate advice can prevent a long and debilitating dispute.
