Hans de Ruiter, Attorney at Law

Born in August 1956, graduate law (LL.M.) University of Amsterdam, member of the Netherlands Bar Association.

The office specializes in civil law, contracts and torts. After a few years as an Attorney at Law in a larger law firm specialising in bankruptcy and commercial law, I decided to work in a smaller team with specialised legal expertise. This way I can also offer competent legal advice to English-speaking clients who are in need of a dedicated dutch lawyer. Not a number in a large international firm, but a personal and qualified lawyer who treats your interests with great care. Since 2011 I work together as a team with Chris Wiekeraad. Our dutch website is www.wr-advocaten.nl.

Experience in areas like bankruptcy (as a trustee), contracts, employment, litigation, corporate and business law. Since I have a wide experience as a business controller, my advice need not be limited to legal challenges, but can be viewed in a wider perspective.

Other activities are lecturing civil and commercial law to accountancy students, as well as giving masterclass bankruptcy to CPA’s, as part of their permanent education.

Earlier professional experience as a financial and business controller in The Netherlands and in New Jersey, United States. In New Jersey I worked for Blasko Auto Leasing (1985) and as business manager finance for Medical Publishing Enterprises in Fair Lawn, New Jersey (1989). Working as controller for Stacker Machine Company (1990). SMC was purchased by Butler Automatic (Massachussets) after it went through bankruptcy in March 1992. After this acquisition I continued to work for Butler Automatic until August 1993 as their controller in New Jersey.
