As a lawyer I am interested in the way in which systems of intellectual property law deal with development and innovation. How do we ensure the underlying goal of the “IP” system, progress? Business ethics is another area of interest. I look at corporate social responsibility from the angle of private law. I wrote my PhD in Leiden and worked as an independent legal consultant after that. Recently I returned to Leiden Law School, setting up new courses with my colleagues in my areas of interest.
