I am a Partner at the international law firm Bird & Bird.
I have worked closely with clients in the public and private sectors to implement long term change programmes, often international in scope and always with a technology angle.
My particular interests lie in the adoption of connectivity to invent, improve and transform products, businesses and our cities for example. Recently I have been working with clients in industries like energy, automotive and aviation as they add connected solutions to their services and have been looking with them at 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 grew up and worked 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.
