Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world
"I am passionate about tech and innovation, and how they can interact with traditional legal concepts. I try to apply a future-focussed mindset to all problems and to think out of the box. I also believe our legal expertise makes the most sense when we apply it to the challenges of tomorrow. Not only to mitigate risks, but also to help preserving important values and bring stability. Our focus on transformation drivers, in particular Digitalisation and Urban Dynamics, is such a great opportunity to combine these challenges, and it nurtures my passion for this job."
