Gustina works closely with our client and support teams across our six offices providing pro-active legal support in company and corporate matters and queries relating to funds, data protection, FATCA/CRS and AIFMD.
Gustina’s professional background is as diverse as the world itself; having lived, worked and studied in numerous countries, including Holland, Belgium, Sweden, Japan, China and, most recently, the UK, Gustina is always up for an adventure. Starting her career as an in-house legal adviser, Gustina provided legal advice on employment, outsourcing and IT contracts in key European jurisdictions. Subsequent to this, she worked for a global bank specialising in on-boarding private and public companies which exposed her to understanding and applying rigorous KYC and AML requirements in her day-to-day work. So as to evolve her varied expertise further, Gustina trained with and completed her legal qualification at a leading U.S. law firm in London, developing instrumental know-how in the field of finance, with specific focus on bank finance, capital markets and asset finance.
Ready for her next challenge, Gustina was on the lookout for a business which encompassed a strong entrepreneurial spirit and commercial mind-set. Aztec Group proved to be an obvious match, “As I walked into the Aztec Group’s offices, I felt immediately welcomed, warming towards my future colleagues right away during the interview.” As a member of our Group Legal Team, Gustina finds that what makes the Aztec Group the bright alternative is the fact that it is “always open to fresh ideas. Aztec Group really values you as an individual whilst continuously providing you with the constructive feedback to ensure you never stop developing professionally. The manner in which you treat your employees is directly reflected in how you treat your clients and the services you provide and this is something that the Aztec Group has got just right.”
In addition to her impressive multi-lingual skills in five languages, Gustina is well-known amongst colleagues for her exceptional cooking skills and love of good food. She is our first point of contact not only for legal advice but also for dining recommendations in London.
Gustina has a civil and common law background and holds Master of Laws degrees from Maastricht University and University of Kent. Gustina is a qualified solicitor in England and Wales.
