M&A SPECIALISTS
TO US, TRIBU STANDS FOR SHARED VALUES

The start of our own M&A boutique represents a new and modern organizational model alongside the traditional culture that predominates the legal profession. I am convinced there is another way and that is why the organizational culture of TRIBU is not based on hierarchy, but on trust, entrepreneurship and sharing knowledge. That is what makes our team a tribe.

The start of our own M&A boutique is an opportunity to become an entrepreneur. I strongly believe that an open culture based on mutual trust is crucial for the success of an excellent team. When the team is thriving, it benefits our clients.

Lawyer and entrepreneur
Since 1992, I have worked at various large law firms in the Netherlands, both as a lawyer and as a partner. As a partner, I have managed the Eindhoven office of AKD and I have been in charge of the corporate / M&A practice of Pels Rijcken. Between 2006 and 2010, I broadened my professional horizon as managing partner of the management investment company Penguin Ventures. This operational experience in private equity makes me an all-round advisor, specifically in the technical, whole-sale industry. In the second half of 2020, the first ideas for TRIBU started to develop.

Corporate / M&A specialist
I have extensive experience within a broad transaction practice. Subsequently, I have worked with various clients, such as mid-market family-owned businesses, entrepreneurs and private equity firms. Within private equity, I have focused specifically on family offices and investment groups. Many of my clients also operate internationally.

Other interests
Every year, I teach the course ‘legal M&A aspects’ as part of the Business Valuation Course at the Rotterdam School of Management. Furthermore, I teach various guest courses to master’s students of the law faculty of Erasmus University Rotterdam.

Since September of 2019, I am a member of the supervisory board of the Nederlands Kamerkoor.

Lawyer and entrepreneur
Since 2014, I have been working as a lawyer. I started my career at De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek. In 2018, I joined Pels Rijcken to help expand the corporate / M&A practice. This career step has sparked my interest to become an entrepreneur and build a strong team. The start of TRIBU in 2021 has marked the beginning of that journey.

Corporate / M&A specialist
I have been involved in several M&A transactions, varying from extensive international projects to notable mid-markets transactions in the Netherlands. The past few years, I have also gained significant experience in setting up joint ventures and management participations. In this line of work, I have noticed that it is crucial to fully comprehend the mutual relationships and interests. Therefore, I see it as an added value to my work that I can assist the clients with these matters as well. Mainly with limited auctions and large restructurings, I have regularly fulfilled the job of project manager, next to my advisory role.

Other interests
Since 2020, I have been a member of NINTES, a social network for talented future leaders.

Corporate / M&A specialist
In several M&A transactions, I advised a diverse range of clients. These transactions cover large international auction processes as well as Dutch transactions for entrepreneurs, private equity, family businesses and family offices. In addition, I have been regularly involved in restructurings, real estate transactions and other corporate law issues.
