Strategic thinker. Not only does he look at what someone does or says, he also wants to know why. Ultimately, the underlying interests are at stake; the interests of the client versus those of other parties. The law is a tool to serve these interests and at the same time defines the boundaries. Justice is a strong motivator for Rob.
“I have been registered as a lawyer since 1999. Before this, I had already gained a lot of experience in business. Not only as a lawyer but also as a manager of real estate portfolios. Between 2005 and 2008, I worked at Kristal, a project developer run for and by housing corporations. Since then, I have done regular work for housing corporations. I also advise clients in the real estate sector, industry and technology.”
I think like a company lawyer, that is from the perspective of the client; I am always focused on the solution but will take decisive action if necessary. Typical HYS & Co. Advocaten. I will put on my gown if required but this is never a goal in itself. The best preliminary injunction is one that is settled before the hearing date.
