About Me

I am a Financial Services Regulatory partner with a focus on Payments & Fintech, including crypto assets and blockchain. I advise our clients on a wide range of complex issues related to the Act on Financial Supervision, Dutch AML Act and EU financial supervision legislation.

Working as part of our international Financial Services sector groups, I advise our clients on a wide range of complex issues regarding the financial supervision, money laundering and terrorist financing prevention acts, such as compliance (including audits), governance and risk management, market conduct, outsourcing and permissibility of activities and investments. I have a special focus on Payments & Fintech, handling matters concerning payment schemes, cards, e-money, tokenisation, crypto assets, blockchain and other relevant financial services regulations. I also assist our clients with the regulatory aspects of commercial agreements, cross-border transactions and cooperation in the Payments and FinTech space. My clients vary from payment services providers, banks to crypto services providers and electronic money institutions, as well as fund managers and investment firms.

I have been a lawyer since 2000. Originally a litigator, I am well placed to advise clients at the intersection of Financial Services Regulatory and Dispute Resolution. With regard to Financial Litigation, my areas of expertise span private and public law as well as class actions. Prior to joining our firm, I was a financial services regulatory and financial litigation partner at an international law firm.

Clients describe me as a financial services regulatory lawyer with a pragmatic approach, who combines in-depth expertise with practical solutions.

I regularly speak at events and conferences about Payments and Fintech topics.
