Summary

 

I advise clients primarily in insurance, maritime and transport law. I also work on general commercial, conflict management and compliance matters.

 

Before joining Wiidare in 2019, I worked at international insurance and shipping companies for over ten years. As an in-house counsel and team manager, I worked on a broad range of topics such as insurance coverage and liability issues, legal risk assessment, claim management and claims processes, contract law, and legal compliance. I have been in charge of various complex cross-border insurance projects and advised senior management in various operations and transactions. In my previous legal role, I was responsible for all legal and insurance affairs of an international shipping company.

 

As Legal Business Partner, I am committed to providing service that is proactive, efficient, and aligned with the clients’ needs and business strategies. I enjoy working together with clients and finding creative ways to resolve their challenges.

 

Due to my work experience, I am very well familiar with insurance, shipping and logistics, and I am therefore able to support our clients especially in issues related to these industries. Defining and developing processes is essential when it comes to insurance, and I am eager to consult and share best practices with our clients.
