Bas Ebels



One of the most important things I have learnt as a lawyer is to truly listen to my clients. To not just suggest a solution, but to work together towards finding the solution. To listen, ask questions, and understand. Only then will I be able to solve your problem, or inform and advise you. As a lawyer I advise companies during reorganisations and difficult times, and advise directors and supervisors on liability issues, both inside and outside of the realm of bankruptcies. I also advise healthcare institutions, as well as insurance companies and brokers. Besides this, I am often appointed by Dutch courts as insolvency administrator in the bankruptcy of various companies. This ensures my capability to adapt to a variety of companies and markets, and means I can quickly master industry-specific methods and regulations.
