Jelmer Feenstra – Lawyer

Jelmer works in the fields of corporate and insolvency law. He provides legal advice and conducts litigation on issues related to contracts, forms of collaboration, financing, securities and and the enforcement of security interests and shareholder disputes. In addition, Jelmer advises companies, shareholders and directors on reorganisations, restructurings, relaunches and impending bankruptcies.

He readily uses this knowledge in the advice he provides.
