  • Legal manager
  • Whirlpool

Currently, I deal with contracts and legal/regulatory consultancy regarding data protection, privacy, tech, finance and procurement issues.

As often as I can, I need to understand what the company I’m working for is selling/providing in order to fulfil my duties in the best and most accurate way I can.

Tech will affect all of us. We’ll have to be more specialised in our areas of expertise and try to use technology as our best partners.

When choosing external advisers, I would normally take into consideration not just cost, but also certified knowledge. External professionals should be fast, detailed and offer a good deal.

I normally focus my activities on mitigating risks, as well as helping [companies] to achieve their goals. I believe in all the companies that I’ve worked for (TIVIT, UOL and ClearSale), including the one I’m currently working for (Whirlpool), I’m trying my best to do that.
