Career

Admitted to the Dutch Bar in 2017. 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 Bird & Bird’s 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.
