Bas Steins Bisschop



I have many years of experience in the field of broad corporate law, which I enjoy using in the practice and development of corporate law practice. After all these years my love for the craft has never waned, also and precisely due to the combination of practice and knowledge. I am currently involved in this as advisor to UdinkSchepel, (emeritus) professor, chairman of the supervisory board of a listed company, as well as in other supervisory positions.
