MR. R.H. VAN DE BEETEN
A lawyer since 1981
Working for entrepreneurs means that you are bound to meet many different people. One entrepreneur is a trader, the next one designs software and yet another produces semi-manufactures for industrial customers. All clients have their own expertise and expect this from their lawyer as well. Rob van de Beeten has accrued this expertise during the many years he has been practising law and it is something he shares with colleagues, especially when training young lawyers. Rob has also learnt a lot from the other positions he has held next to his main profession. As a Dutch senator he was closely involved with the legislative process. He has become well acquainted with sectors such as education and housing associations through various positions on boards. Governance in companies and institutions has become increasingly important in recent years as is made apparent by the many directors of companies and institutions being held liable. This can be prevented by means of sound and practical advice, ensuring a workable situation.
Rob specialises in corporate law: business acquisitions, partnerships and joint ventures, and real estate. His litigation experience has put him in a position where he can make a good estimate of what is and is not feasible if a case is brought before the court, or if an appeal offers any chance of success.
