Gerwald has acquired substantial industrial market experience. Before joining Arnold & Siedsma in 2004, he spent eight years working in Research and Development.

Thanks to this background, Gerwald has an outstanding ability to translate between the theory and practice of technical inventions, and can act as an effective sounding-board for questions in this area.
