Jan Willem van der Velden

Prof. dr. Jan Willem van der Velden founded our firm together with dr. Han Keijser in 2009. He advises on and litigates in financial law. For the last twenty years, he has been acting for clients that are active in financial markets.

Jan Willem is professor of financial law at the University of Amsterdam. He publishes and lectures on financial services regulations, civil law, and partnership law. In 2008 he completed his dissertation on “Investment funds and Dutch civil law”, combining an academic lectureship with a law practice at De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek.

Jan Willem serves as substitute judge at the Court of Appeal in ’s-Hertogenbosch. He is board member of an NGO for development.

"Practice is more colourful than theory, yet legal research and lecturing inspire to find solutions one might not otherwise have thought of in everyday practice."
