Background

Pieter studied law at Rijksuniversiteit Leiden and graduated in 1996. He regularly lectures at M&A seminars, among others for Universiteit van Amsterdam, Stichting Beroepsopleiding Bedrijfsjuristen and Law Firm School.

He is recommended by Chambers Global, Chambers Europe and Legal 500. According to Chambers, he is described by clients as "a true boardroom adviser - he helps to cover the grey areas and tells us what directions we can go in" and as "an excellent adviser." Other clients say "he combines technical and legal skills with many years of experience and knowledge of transactions." (Chambers Global 2018).

Apart from Dutch and English, Pieter speaks German fluently.
