I am a partner in our Tax practice in The Hague and my in-depth knowledge and expertise in tax matters complements Bird & Bird's key focus on innovation and energy.

With more than 15 years of experience, I advise on a broad array of international tax matters with a particular focus on international structuring and restructurings, tax control and compliance matters and tax litigation, all with a focus on innovation, technology and energy matters.

Over the years I have specialised in the structuring of corporate foundations, not-for-profit organisations as well as Dutch and international charitable funds and social impact investments. Furthermore, I regularly advise our sector clients on energy taxes, tax incentives, VAT on services and on betting and gaming taxes.

For more than a decade I regularly visited South Africa on business trips to meet longstanding clients and contracts and get acquainted with new ones.

I'm a member of the Dutch Association of Tax Advisers, the International Fiscal Association, the International Chamber of Commerce, the Southern African Netherlands Chamber of Commerce and the Dutch Association of Tax Science.
