Down to earth. It must have something to do with my hometown of Groningen. My name is Laurens Sjoerts and I have been a lawyer since 2012, specialising in corporate law and bankruptcy law.

With an open and relaxed approach, I am looking for solutions for a wide range of entrepreneurs. And that is also what clients say about me. They don’t see me as a run-of-the-mill lawyer, but rather as an accessible sparring partner.

I also have a strong sense of justice. When a client does not receive payment or receives a product (or service) that does not meet expectations, I lend them my full support. In doing so, my sports mentality comes in handy.

I have been working for many years in Amsterdam as a liquidator and have been involved in various major bankruptcies. I am therefore the perfect partner if you have to deal with a liquidator or if a contracting party goes bankrupt.
