Having started her career initially in the humanities, teaching German and Danish, Antje Petersen has been practicing law since the early nineties with an emphasis on international transactions.  She worked for close to a decade in the international practice group of a law firm in the US Midwest and then went in-house with a medical device client whose European headquarters were located in the Netherlands.  Here she built and ran the EMEA legal department along with Compliance before the latter was organized as an independent unit.  Eventually, she assumed the role of Global Compliance Officer for the company and responsibility for the Global Privacy and Data Protection program.    After a fascinating interlude as Interim General Counsel of a globally active Tier 1 supplier to the automotive industry, she recently returned to the med tech arena and is now the Group General Counsel of a Swiss company, Sonova AG, manufacturer of hearing care solutions from hearing aids to cochlear implants.
