She particularly enjoys cases that have a crossover between competition law and IP and has advised on all sorts of projects from copyright to biotech and chemicals to semiconductors.

The digital single market is providing plenty of challenges to competition law and she finds it interesting to see how legislators and courts apply long standing rules to new areas.
