My in-house counsel and compliance career spans general counsel and division general counsel, senior compliance roles in listed, Fortune 200 manufacturing/FMCG multinationals, as well as AmLaw 100 law firms. I have extensive experience in regulatory, corporate and commercial law, legal department management and compliance. I was privileged to lead teams of attorneys, scientists and regulatory consultants across several jurisdictions, which led to recognition as a unique industry and legislative expert in times of change and in novel, disruptive technologies. I am honored to serve both global harm reduction and consumer needs. My specialty are “first time ever” projects and complex multidisciplinary assignments, including novel litigation. I had the good fortune – and worked hard for it as well! – to develop people inclusion skills in multicultural environments, and to focus on efficient and cost-effective compliance with fast-changing regulatory frameworks.
