Furthermore she is a member of the Marques Designs Team. She publishes, teaches and lectures regularly on subjects related to her practice. Furthermore, she is chairing and co-author the Dutch AIPPI group reports on ‘Requirements for protection of designs’ and ‘Bad faith trademarks’.

Moïra is recommended in Legal 500 as ‘Strategic, flexible and cost-effective’ and also in the IP Stars (‘rising star‘), WTR1000 and in Chambers as ‘a good thinker who quickly gets to the heart of the matter’.

Music is very important to Moïra. She chairs the ‘Stichting Symphonic Cinema’ and she plays the clarinet and the cello.
