She specialises in intellectual property licensing, research and development driven contracts, pharmaceutical contracts, financing rounds and mergers and acquisitions. Carine guides her clients from the crib to their exit, including spinning out businesses from universities, obtaining financing (equity, loans, or subsidies), securing strategic partners, intellectual property exploitation, clinical development, market approval, and commercialisation.

Carine obtained a medical degree as well as a law degree. From 1990 until 1997 she worked for the Dutch law firm Stibbe and at the same time, held the office of registrar of the Dutch Medical Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal. After leaving Stibbe, she worked as corporate counsellor for Pharming, the first biotechnology company in The Netherlands.

Carine’s clients include well-known European biotech companies, knowledge institutes, academic hospitals, and venture capitalists.
