Adrien in a nutshell

Hello world!

My name is Adrien and if you are a tech professional, I would be happy cracking down on your legal woes. My mission it to take legal out of your way so you can focus on what matters most to you: growing your business.

In a nutshell, I read the law at the University of Louvain (both at the French-and Dutch-speaking institutions) and at the University of Cambridge (where I obtained a post-grad in commercial law).

I earned my stripes as a business lawyer in international law firms Linklaters and CMS, mainly dealing with intellectual property and data protection matters. Most and foremost, I learned coding at Le Wagon school, which makes me a kind of a rare breed in the legal sector. I crafted this website myself using Ruby as main programming language (with the help of the Rails framework). You can see (and contribute to) the source code on this GitHub public repository.

What's more? I am a certified privacy professional and lawyer recommended by the Legal 500 directory in the Telecoms & IT sector. I work in English, French and Dutch. For more info, see my full profile on LinkedIn or have a glimpse at my CV (the old-fashioned way).

Adrien integrates seamlessly into your favourite apps!
