For almost twenty years, Sabine has focused on leveraged and acquisition finance, as well as corporate finance.

Recognized for her "excellent" and "efficient" service, her advice is mainly sought by lenders both on domestic and complex cross-border financial transactions.

Always willing to answer her clients' needs in an ever changing financing market, Sabine has more recently developed a strong expertise on direct lending with the rise of private debt funds, unitranche financing and other disintermediated financing.

Sabine is regularly ranked in leading legal guides where she is referred to as a "key partner" (IFLR 1000-2016) and receives praise from clients: "she is proactive" (Legal FMEA 2015); "she is professional, always under control and the documentation very clear" (IFIR 1000-2013).
