Dutch commercial lawyer

Admitted to the Dutch Bar: 2013

The practice of Jacco covers a wide range of areas including commercial contracting and contractual and tort disputes. An important part of his work focuses on advising on commercial contracts, compliance and analysing business disputes before they lead to civil proceedings. This includes setting up a distribution line, drafting sale and agency agreements, but also a part of product safety and product regulations.

After starting his career in the legal profession, Jacco seized the opportunity in 2014 to advise entrepreneurs in the manufacturing industry on a variety of civil law issues at the Koninklijke Metaalunie (the Dutch organisation for small and medium-sized enterprises in the metal industry). In this position, Jacco has gained the necessary expertise in the areas of liability, product safety and the position of manufacturing companies in the event of third-party bankruptcies.

In addition, our Dutch lawyer Jacco Bruinsma has been a member of the VNO-NCW|MKB-Nederland Insolvency Working Group since 2016. In this working group, Jacco participates in the formulation of a joint position regarding new (draft) legislation. In 2018, Jacco successfully completed the Grotius specialisation course in business and liability.
