Maurits joined Benvalor in 2015, on the heels of an 8 year stint at a major firm in Amsterdam. Maurits was a perfect fit and soon proved to be a true entrepreneur who draws clients to his side with his passion for the law and the sectors in which he excels: tech and impact. We are proud to announce that Maurits will be appointed partner as of January 1.
His expertise lies in the field of corporate law, with a particular focus on start-ups and venture capital in the technology and impact sectors. Maurits represents start-ups, scale-ups, investment funds and (impact) investors. He helps them with investments but also with M&A transactions, business structuring, employee stock option plans and commercial contracts. Maurits has acquired a unique level of expertise with convertible loans and crowdfunding. He is the author of standard documentation for convertible loans (see www.capitalwaters.nl) and regularly blogs on this and other venture capital related topics.
Clients commit themselves to Maurits in order to benefit from his knowledge of the market and his extraordinary dedication to his work. Earlier this year, Maurits was selected by Advocatenblad as one of the 35 most talented attorneys under the age of 35 in the Netherlands.
The position of Benvalor in the field of Emerging Companies and Venture Capital will be further strengthened with the addition of Maurits as partner. We look forward to the future with confidence and joy and wish the same to all in 2017.
