About Me

Ronald is a Partner in Bird & Bird's Commercial Department in London and specialises in IT and communications projects, supporting clients in the public and private sector with their innovation projects. Ronald is co-head of Bird & Bird's global Tech & Comms group.

I am particularly interested in the adoption of connectivity to invent, improve and transform products, businesses and our cities for example.

I previously worked on national programmes for the implementation of IT in the NHS and the adoption of smart metering in Britain and currently support a number of clients with their procurement/development of connected technology solutions.

Examples include the establishment of IoT platforms, the adoption of connectivity by a number of industries (such as energy, automotive and aviation) and the development of new business models around the data that is being created as a result of all those newly connected devices and services.

Before I joined Bird & Bird in London I qualified as a lawyer in the Netherlands and whilst I no longer practice Dutch law, I continue to regularly work in our Dutch offices and spend a lot of time working with my colleagues internationally to help our clients with their cross-border technology projects.
