I solve problems

Business focussed Legal Counsel with an MBA-degree. Over 18 years of experience as in-house (General) Counsel and as a corporate lawyer at an international law firm. I provide interim solutions and legal consultancy services.

I bring positivity and energy to the table.

I am an all-round senior legal counsel with specific expertise in the field of corporate law, commercial contracting, M&A transactions, governance and compliance. In addition, I have experience with establishing and managing a legal department and with the preparation and execution of complex legal projects. With strong analytical skills, I can quickly get a good understanding of the organisation and the key drivers of the business. As a result, I am capable of making the connection between the business side and the legal side of a project.
