The start of January marks the anniversary of RA Mag. Tanja Müller-Poulakos’s takeover of her father’s law firm in Linz. This symbolises five years of successfully fulfilling clients’ wishes through rigour, dedication and rejection of all prejudices as a woman in the legal profession. Having finished her training at 28, she is now a lawyer, manager and mother of two. Despite her youthful looks, she succeeded in a male-dominated industry because of her quick comprehension skills, efficient work practices, her ability to quickly grasp the facts of a case, a high focus on finding solutions and persuasive power.
