More about Roman

Attention, you are about to start reading a section where lawyers usually brag about their education, clients and multi-million deals. Here is my account.

My passion is to assist entrepreneurs in making the world a better place by helping them navigate the legal challenges they face along the way. This has translated into our firm's focus on emerging technologies and investment deals. As such, we love working with startups and early-stage investors, but also with corporations and governments embracing the winds of change.

I graduated from a law school with distinctions and received a business degree from a leading Dutch university. Short online courses on game theory and computer science that I accidentally completed in between were no less valuable.

When not practicing law and reading about tech, I enjoy snowboarding and surfing.
