As an associate in the Corporate practice in The Hague, I specialise in cross-border M&A, joint ventures and venture capital. I have a hands-on-approach and I believe in supporting our clients' businesses with pragmatic advice and solutions.

Over the years I have been involved in various domestic and international acquisitions, private equity and venture capital investments and joint ventures. I have built-up significant experience in the life sciences sector as well as in the field of technology and communications.

Being involved in complex transactions has enabled to me to think on my feet. Identifying the important legal aspects, without losing sight of the business of the client, is what brings added value to a transaction. As a transaction lawyer I am not only experienced in providing legal advice in complex transactions but also in coordinating cross-border teams and project management with a multi-disciplinary approach. Identifying the important legal aspects without losing sight of the clients' business brings added value to a transaction.

In addition, I'm also involved with the startup team where I support entrepreneurs with advice on the corporate legal aspects of their businesses and advise them in respect of their investments.
