Professional Profile and Bio

Working within the European and Belgian legal systems, I practice in the areas of European Union environmental and regulatory law, government contracts, European competition and procurement law, investment and subsidy policy in the Flemish Community, implementation of European legislation in the Flemish Community and overall co-operation with the Belgian government.

I work with clients in the chemical, biocide and plant protection product industries, who note that I have extremely good insight into how the European Commission works and how we can align our expectations accordingly. I also handle environmental law issues, often involving the regulation of highly toxic substances.

I have served as a legal adviser to the Flemish Minister of Economy and I counsel US and European clients regarding trade and investment problems in Europe, particularly in Belgium.

I have established many task forces and associations, working on issues ranging from the regulation of industrial minerals and chemical products to the development of interbank exchange rates for the Euro.

I have contributed to many publications such as 'With a licence to kill: biocidal products under a new EU draft regulation' (Specialty Chemicals, Online, Feb 2011).

I am fluent in English, French and Dutch and speak a good level of German.
