people

“pragmatic, engaged and decisive.”

Intellectual property rights, privacy law and IT law are the areas of the law that I am particularly passionate about and am actively involved in.
I like to provide incisive, useful and reliable advice for preventing problems but also enjoy conducting legal proceedings in order to protect ideas, knowledge, inventiveness, creativity, services and products. I am extremely engaged with my clients.
Over recent years, I have attended a range of courses on privacy law and privacy management. Several organisations have appointed me as their data protection officer.
In addition to my work for my own practice, ITenIE, I work 2 to 3 days every week for Van der Steenhoven advocaten.
