With 20 years' experience of working in the EU and US regulatory environment, in both the private and public sectors, I have extensive knowledge of issues impacting the technology, media and communications sectors. By closely monitoring the evolution and potential impact of regulatory proposals on your sector, I can develop and implement an effective EU engagement plan for your organisation. My active support will help to ensure that decisions affecting your business are not taken without your voice being heard. My expertise ranges from helping to place issues proactively on the legislative agenda, to providing support and strategic advice based on profound regulatory knowledge and a thorough understanding of public policy and decision-making procedures.I joined Bird & Bird in 2018 from the US Mission to the European Union, where I worked as a senior intellectual property specialist within the US Commerce Department (USPTO). I previously held positions in public affairs and communications for the international recording industry and news media publishing. In addition to my native English, I have a knowledge of French and Dutch.
