     Let’s connect from day one


Right after obtaining his law degree from Leiden University (specialising both in civil law and business law), Vincent chose to join a law practice that focused almost solely on commercial entrepreneurs. During his career he built on his legal expertise by taking a range of specialist degree programs.

Areas of Expertise

  • Business law

  • Employment law

  • Law of obligations

  • Tenancy law commercial premises

  • Privacy-related issues (GDPR)

  • Director/major shareholder issues, including inheritance law

  • Procedural law


Vincent’s Way of Working

Owing to his broad legal background and knowledge, focused on business and industry,  Vincent excels in matters that call for insight into different disciplines. His clients benefit from his solid set of skills and knowhow that often eliminate the need for big teams in acquisitions, the untangling of joint ventures or complex litigation. This makes working with Vincent extremely efficient, and highly cost-effective.

In addition, Vincent operates in markets that these days are termed ‘niche’, like business law, real property and employment law, both as an advisor and a litigator.


Vincent about Vincent

Vincent: “I have been a lawyer for 27 years, and over that period I have seen major changes in the market. I have been fortunate in that in my first years as a lawyer I was mentored and trained by very expert, true-blue lawyers like Peter Ruig. Until his retirement Peter and I managed a singular, nationally as well as internationally orientated, firm for twenty years. I am happy and proud to be one of the founding partners of DayOne. Added to my own, the specialisms and experience of my new partners allow us to serve our commercial clients in almost all areas of law. I’d stake my life on the quality and experience they offer, in particular in the areas that are not my forte.

Over the years I have never wavered in my commitment to my clients. I always work client-oriented, never subject or section oriented. I want to be a sounding board for entrepreneurs, not a one-item super specialist. It is my conviction that super specialisation often creates tunnel vision that doesn’t really benefit the average entrepreneur. I don’t mind and even enjoy representing the occasional private individual. Given our commercial practice those cases are usually limited to employment issues, or director/major shareholder issues such as inheritance law.’
