I am a trade and customs lawyer focusing on compliance with anti-bribery, customs, export controls and economic sanctions regulations.
I specialise in providing and coordinating multi-jurisdictional trade compliance advice for clients in the computer and software technology, aviation and aerospace, defence, life science, retail and logistics sectors.
Drawing from our practice experience dealing with cross-border trade matters, I have developed in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience to help our clients understand varying implementations and interpretations of administrations in different EU Member States.
As a member of our tech & comms, life science and retail and consumer sector groups in The Hague, I have been particularly involved in a number of challenging compliance matters dealing with both the EU and US export controls and sanctions frameworks helping our client evaluate their interactions and effects from a business perspective.
Over the years, I have supported clients in internal audits and investigations as well as assisted clients in voluntary self-disclosures and legal proceedings. I have also been closely involved in global restructuring projects improving customs compliance and implementing cost-effective supply chains. I have extensive experience dealing with intangible technology transfer (ITT) challenges and setting up of export control portfolios comprising proper classification, export licensing and effective internal compliance programs.
Above all, I am always keen to provide sage and practical advice and guidance in order to help achieve client's trade objectives, which always begins with connecting and gaining an understanding of the client's industry, business model, environment and unique needs.
