A bit about me

Working as I do from the Netherlands, I’m ideally placed to support both UK and international clients whose trading relationships are developing here through our strong links with trusted Dutch law firms and business advisors, and also to Dutch or EU businesses needing insight into English commercial law.

My work focuses on advising business clients on their legal rights and obligations in their day-to-day business relationships and how to spot and manage risk, whether that be with customers, suppliers, agent or distributors.  My experience covers all aspects of commercial law, including intellectual property, with a particular emphasis on data protection; I have advised and presented extensively on GDPR and associated legislation.

I like to get to know clients’ businesses really well, so that I can ensure my advice is absolutely tailored to their needs; commercial law can make a real difference to their day to day operations, because clear and accurate contracts will help relationships to run smoothly. I have worked for major pharmaceutical, health care and technology businesses, with the health and social care sector to the fore recently.

Outside work, I love running and cycling and my latest passion is learning Dutch!

Want to know more?

Plan ahead. Involve lawyers as early as possible when thinking about a new project/venture. It could save time in the long run.

Look for lawyers with the right specialism who understand your sector.

Provide as much information as you can early on so you can be sure you get a comprehensive picture at the outset.

How much will it cost?

This will always be specific to the work in hand, but I will always try to give a true estimate at the start of each phase of work.

Why is this important and how does it affect my business?

Clients need specific, commercial advice. I will always tailor my advice to the business and its particular concerns and appetite for risk.
