In 2003 I finished Law school at the Anton de Kom University of Suriname. Aside from my interest in criminal law, employment and inheritance law, I made a special study of human rights. At the Leiden Law Courses at Leiden University I studied European Protection of Human Rights and I was part of the team that represented the AdeKUS on the Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition at the Washington College of Law of the American University in Washington DC. I completed my studies with an internship at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (OAS) in Washington DC.
I work in various civil jurisdictions, but I have a distinctive interest in labor law and intellectual property law.
The guidance of companies in what they perceive as a maze of contracts is a favorite part of my job. The entrepreneur and I make a study of the existing legal infrastructure in the company and whether it fulfills the vision / plans the entrepreneur has for his or her business. For example: the agreements, the terms and conditions, delivery contracts, leases, capturing IP rights, etc. After the screening the existing contracts are amended when and where necessary. By this approach many problems are prevented.
My spare time study and participate in projects regarding international law and human rights.
