About Me

I joined our firm in 2001 as one of the founding lawyers of our office in The Hague. Today I jointly lead our Tech & Comms Group in the Netherlands.

I work on technology and commercial projects, as well as content digitisation and social media. I'm also a member of our Commercial Group.

My practice is very diverse, ranging from complex licensing deals to communication infrastructure transactions, from technology procurement to high-tech advice on topics such as artificial intelligence to big data and from multijurisdictional contracts to IT-dispute resolution. I combine a pragmatic approach with a deep understanding of the complexities that can arise in technology projects and work with my team to develop practical and innovative solutions to resolve them. My client base reflects the diversity of my practice, from innovative start-ups to Dutch and international tech-multinationals.

As well as speaking at local and international seminars, I am a member of the Dutch Association for Information Technology and Law (NVvIR), and was previously on the board of the Netherlands Association of Computer Lawyers (VIRA).
