About Me

As senior associate in our Competition & EU Law and Regulatory Groups in The Hague, I specialise in regulatory disputes and administrative law, with a focus on the technology, communications and energy & utilities sectors.

I advise on administrative disputes, competition enforcement law, regulatory frameworks, legal history and European law. As a member of our Competition, Tech & Comms and Energy & Utilities Groups, I am also involved in contentious administrative matters. My experience includes representing and advising clients in enforcement proceedings and other legal disputes, for example with the Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets. I also have experience in secondments to clients active in the energy sector which greatly benefitted my development as a lawyer and understanding the client's needs.

Before my legal education, I studied at the Dutch National Ballet School for eight years and later lived and studied in London for three years, where I graduated from the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with a BA (Hons) in Dance Theatre. I take this experience with me in my legal career since perseverance, discipline and precision are key elements that I learnt from a young age. It also allows me to think outside the box and provide creative solutions to clients.

I am a member of the Dutch Administrative Law Association, the Dutch Competition Law Association and the Dutch Energy Law Association.

I have personally worked a lot with Tialda Beetstra. She's an associate who works in the team of partner Pauline Kuipers. Tialda works very efficiently, is highly qualified and was well informed in a short time about the details of our organization and the sensitivities of the market in which we operate. Moreover, a very pleasant person to work with.
