I strive to find the best possible solutions suited to our clients' data protection issues.

I am part of the privacy & data protection team based in Brussels with a focus on General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and e-Privacy related matters.

By working for clients operating worldwide, I have learned how to successfully accommodate the different client demands within data protection compliance projects, through close cooperation with our clients and by dedicating my full attention to their concerns.

With every client engagement, I am keen to examine and propose the most suitable solutions to our client's data protection challenges whether they are within or outside the European Economic Area (EEA). When our clients operate in several member states and third countries, we can quickly respond to their request by seamlessly coordinating with other data protection teams within the Bird & Bird offices around the world.

For us at Bird & Bird, it is of utmost importance to have a results-oriented approach when giving advice and crafting documents designed for the company's compliance with GDPR and e-Privacy Directive. To that effect, I advise clients on how to use their own resources and internal structure to address, for example, a personal data breach and to comply with the notification obligations to the data protection authorities and the affected individuals. I also assist our clients in addressing data subject's requests, in lawfully transferring personal data to other third countries, in performing direct marketing communications to actual and/or potential customers, to design privacy policies etc.

Before joining Bird & Bird, I obtained an LLM in European Law at Leiden University and a BA in International Relations and International Organisation at Groningen University, while acquiring an Honours College Diploma. I have further forged my passion and understanding of EU law through my exchange semester at Maastricht University.
