I specialize in European Union and national competition law, with a focus on cartel investigations, private damages litigation and merger control. I frequently speak at in-house seminars and trainings in the field of competition law.

I have been at contrast since the start in 2006 and I am a counsel since 2015.

I hold a master’s degree in law from the University of Ghent and obtained a Master’s degree in European law from Queen Mary, University of London. I was an intern at DG Competition of the European Commission and I am a member of the editorial board of Competitio.

I regularly contribute to publications in the field of competition law and co-authored a publication on the EU Private Damages Directive.

I am a member of the Brussels bar. I speak Dutch, English and French.

Particular thanks to you for doing such a thorough and prompt job. A lot of work completed very efficiently!
