Summary

 

My goal is to help businesses in their journey towards digitalization, as well as user-friendly and compliant products and services. I am the kind of lawyer who strives to find solutions and enable things, rather than say “no” just in case. To this end, I am committed to delivering solutions with practical value, without overlooking thorough background work and risk analysis.

 

In my legal career, I have gained versatile experience in a variety of fields of business law and dispute resolution. I started working with data protection in 2014 and have therefore been learning my way and evolving as a privacy professional along with the rapid rise of the whole field. I have assisted many businesses in developing their privacy programs, tools and awareness from scratch. I have conducted several comprehensive GDPR development projects, provided privacy by design support in software development projects, conducted data protection impact assessments (DPIA) and drafted privacy notices, data processing agreements, etc. I am also familiar with sector-specific regulations in the field and I understand the technical and practical realities of privacy work.

 

In addition to data protection, I also have several years of experience in corporate, employment and contract law. Through my experience in the judiciary, I have also gained practical dispute resolution and courtroom experience. I have worked in different kinds of organizations from a Big 4 company to a listed corporation and in my past positions I also had the privilege of working with a broad range of clients with varying needs. Thanks to my versatile background, I am able to adopt a holistic approach to assisting companies in their legal matters and looking at problems from different angles.

 

As a Legal Business Partner, I want to help businesses thrive in what they are doing. The way I see it, legal is an integral part of any activity and should run smoothly along without slowing down everyday operations.
