In 2006, I graduated from the University of Maastricht with a major in Commercial and Company law. During the course of my studies and immediately after, I was employed as a paralegal at a medium-sized law firm in the southern part of the Netherlands. As of January 2007, I have been employed at Bierens Debt Recovery Lawyers and was sworn in almost immediately after as an attorney at law. My specialty in commercial and company law is, of course, very useful at Bierens, where I advise and, if necessary, conduct proceedings related to the area of contracts, finance, securities, and debt recovery. In addition, I carry out activities in liquidations, administrations, and debt restructuring, including conducting proceedings as the Liquidator’s attorney.
