I am a General Counsel with a proven track record of advising executive management and handling and overseeing strategic, operational, compliance and litigation matters for global biotech companies.

I help the company achieve its foundational goal of fusing high performance with high integrity and sound risk management. I strongly focus on the alignment of business and legal strategies to create value.

As expert, counsellor, and leader, I consistently and insistently ask not just what is “legal” but what is “right” in terms of performance, integrity and risk, both inside the company and in the company’s many interactions with its business partners and with society.

I thrive in a fast paced, entrepreneurial environment, working with intelligent and motivated – yet down-to-earth and personable – professionals.
