About Me

I am a counsel in Bird & Bird's Corporate team and based in The Hague.

My key practice areas are national and cross-border M&A transactions, structured as share or asset deals, private equity transactions, joint ventures and other corporate transactions. I furthermore advise domestic and multinational clients on the incorporation of ESG into their business strategies and the implementation in operations, supply chains and business relationships throughout value chains.

Before joining Bird & Bird, I was the Regional General Counsel EME(N)A for a Fortune 500 company in the material science and manufacturing industry. In this role, I was part of the leadership team and responsible for all corporate governance, legal and compliance matters in over 27 countries and have led teams of legal professionals in various corporate transactions.

With a career spanning over 20 years and my wealth of experience in both private practice as inhouse, I can act as a true business partner to companies in various industries and can provide pragmatic, cost efficient and quick advice.
