Within the Commercial Group, I advise clients on general commercial law matters and strategic agreements, often within outsourcing and IT-related projects. My primary focus is on matters related to privacy and data protection.Prior to joining Bird & Bird, I studied and worked in different countries, and also worked in the public sector with data protection, as well as with the implementation of EU legislation. These experiences have given me a broader understanding for my focus areas and an ability to view matters from multiple perspectives. I also worked at another law firm, specialising in strategic agreements, IT law, outsourcing and data protection. I have a genuine interest in new technologies and the opportunities and challenges they bring, and I always strive to learn and understand the businesses of our clients. My goal is to provide our clients with to-the-point and commercially useful advice.
