Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

The industrial Western world, in particular Europe, is undergoing fundamental changes, shifting focus to general capabilities and innovation in information technology. Almost every part of our economy is subject to some form of digitization. I seek pragmatic solutions for my clients to cope with the ever-growing legal implications of the increased presence of information technology in our economy.

Changes also come for the legal industry. Together with the team from OC Solutions I am developing IT-based tools making legal services for our clients more comprehensive, more efficient and more economic.
