Bas has been an attorney since 1990. Initially, he practiced corporate law. Since 1996, he has been combining his extensive corporate law knowledge with employment law. He’s most active -and loves- reorganisation, redevelopment and corporate transitions (these include Koninklijke BAM Groep, BAT, Hewlett-Packard, IKEA). A pro in fathoming and guiding organisational changes, stemming from his background as a corporate lawyer. He knows how to translate this fast and efficiently in crystal clear legal frameworks. He advises and counsels his employers from a solid, substantive framework and is undoubtedly to the point.

Bas assists HR partners and upper management in mass redundancies, collective labour agreements and right of participation. Better than anyone, he oversees their consequences, both regarding employment law and a broader scope for the organisation itself. He also acts as a guidance counsellor in case of (statutory) directors’ dismissals.
