About Me

I am associate in the Intellectual Property Group in Amsterdam with a particular focus on litigation concerning patents and trade secrets.

I litigate before the Dutch national courts, as well as before national and international patent offices. I have experience in infringement and validity proceedings in a variety of sectors including life sciences, tech & comms, and retail and consumer goods. I also have experience in multi-jurisdictional litigations in FRAND-disputes.

I am a member of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) and the Association for Young Litigation Lawyers (Vereniging Jonge Procesadvocaten).

Before joining Bird & Bird in 2021, I was an associate at another global law firm based in the Netherlands.
Experience
  • During my professional career as a lawyer, I was on secondment at the pro bono project 'European Lawyers in Lesvos (ELIL)' at the Greece Pro Bono Collaborative, a project to help address the current access to justice crisis for asylum seekers in Greece. As a volunteer lawyer I provided legal and research support surrounding the first instance asylum interview preparation sessions and family reunification applications.
