Digitisation requires me as an adviser to look beyond what is written in the law and understand the clients' needs from a business and technological perspective. The development of new technology does not necessarily await lawmakers and in negotiations, advice on regulatory issues or resolution of disputes, I help clients to navigate in the, sometimes demanding, legal landscape.In my daily work, I advise clients from a broad range of specialised subsectors, in particular from fintech and the telecommunications industry. The broad client base means that I have experience from different industries ranging from automotive to NGOs and public entities.I joined Bird & Bird in 2019, prior to this I worked with IT contracts in advertising, payment services and legal project management in one of Europe's largest software companies. Apart from this, I have experience with export promotion in South America. A background that has given me a particular interest in languages and cross-border trade. My former experience means that I am used to working with the law across multiple jurisdictions.
