Summary

 

My driving forces are development, improvement and innovation. I am fortunate to have been able to utilize these drivers as a leverage in my career and in my legal work relating to digital transformation and new technologies. I enjoy collaborating with people from various fields and incorporating the clients’ strategies and business goals into our advisory work.

 

As Legal Business Partner, I focus on ICT matters (commercial agreements and outsourcing), procurement and intellectual property rights (especially brand protection and IP strategy). I also regularly advise on data protection, marketing and e-commerce. Under our Legal Management Consulting services, I help legal departments prosper by applying my consulting experience and know-how. In all my work, I strive to be a proactive and trusted partner to our clients.

 

Before joining Wiidare, I worked as an in-house counsel at a major listed retailer and as a legal consultant in a Big 4 professional services firm for over ten years. I have been a legal business partner for various business units such as digital operations, procurement, marketing and sales. I possess specialized experience from the retail and healthcare sectors. In addition, I have advised clients in legal management consulting projects such as transformation of legal departments, creation of contract playbooks and improvement of compliance processes.

 

I am very excited to contribute to our clients’ success stories and I am eager to build a brighter legal future.
