I am a specialist in mid-market corporate finance transactions, including takeovers, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and private equity transactions as well as venture capital deals. 

With more than 20 years of experience in those areas, I mainly work for overseas clients on inward Dutch investment, both foreign strategic buyers and financial investors, and have extensive experience of acting on cross-border transactions, particularly in the technology, energy and food sectors.

Apart from my transactional experience, I have particular interest and experience in corporate governance, of both privately held companies and state-owned enterprises. 

My experience is also based on having worked with the OECD in Paris between 2004 and 2006, where I focussed on corporate governance in Asia.

Outside the Netherlands, I have lived and worked in London, Madrid and Paris. 

I have been recommended as an M&A specialist in Chambers Global, Chambers Europe and Legal 500 for a number of years.

I have a law degree from the University of Utrecht, Netherlands; a diploma in Comparative law from the University of Strasbourg, France; and a post graduate degree in Financing and Security from the Grotius Academy, Netherlands. 

I am a member of the Amsterdam Bar, the International Bar Association, the Dutch Corporate Litigation Association and the Dutch Energy Law Association.

I have written numerous articles and edited books on Dutch corporate law, corporate governance issues as well as a number of publications on Dutch energy law and the energy sector.

I have registered the following principal (and secondary) legal practice areas in the Netherlands Bar’s register of legal practice areas (rechtsgebiedenregister): Corporate Law (Ondernemingsrecht) as principal area, with M&A (Fusies en overnames) and Company Law (Vennootschappen) as secondary practice areas.

Based on this registration, I am required to obtain ten training credits per calendar year in Corporate Law in accordance with the standards set by the Netherlands Bar.
