Mr Sotka holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA) and a vocational qualification in accountancy. I believe that this additional
knowledge of business and accountancy gives added value to the client. Clients benefit from a lawyer’s sound knowledge of business, accounting and financing when dealing with legal issues, as these fields cannot in practice be separated.
