In the past few years, he has handled several high-stake public interest cases on privacy-related issues. In 2019 he assisted a coalition of privacy organizations in a case against the Dutch government that resulted in a ban on the Systeem Risico Indicatie (SyRI), that was used to detect fraud. Currently he represents several groups of Uber and Ola drivers before the Court of Appeals of Amsterdam in cases about data transparency, profiling and automated decision-making.
