My passion is to first understand the big picture and then focus on the essential details. I enjoy working with business people from various industries. Combining business and legal is my strength and getting the job done drives me forward.

I have worked ten years in in-house counsel positions in multicultural teams, working as legal business partner in both operational and strategic matters, for instance by supporting cross-border M&A transactions,  advising business teams on strategic contracts and participating in business turnarounds. I started my entrepreneurial journey in 2017 by founding Transform Legal Solutions.

As Legal Business Partner at Wiidare, I assist clients in deal-making and advise on various corporate matters. For instance, I draft, negotiate and advise on international and domestic supply and purchase contracts, capex projects, M&A and investment deals, financing arrangements and other commercial projects. I have experience as a member of leadership teams and company boards and find corporate governance, strategy and compliance work intriguing.

I believe in constant improvement, both on a personal and organizational level. Many businesses and functions have the capacity to perform at a considerably higher level by focusing on their strengths. Changing the course requires an analytic mindset, willingness to make decisions and discipline. This is the reason why we set up our Legal Management Consulting business: to assist legal teams in taking their work to the next level.
