Marius Dekkers

Attorney-at-law

Marius Dekkers gives advice and pursues cases in the fields of international commercial law, corporate law and insolvency law. He has been part of Van Till since 2014.

“My training was broad, and I do a lot of work with international commercial law. This includes, for example, advising manufacturers about drawing up or terminating contracts with distributors, suppliers and agents. In addition, I support acquisitions and help companies experiencing difficulties. For example, I advise SMEs and major companies dealing with relaunches, the threat of insolvency of customers, or disputes with administrators.”

Negotiations

“For me, the most fascinating aspect is negotiating with different parties. I investigate what exactly is going on and what is at stake. I consider all this, devise a solution, and subsequently try to convince the other party to agree to this. I go to great lengths for my clients. I enjoy negotiating at the cutting edge. That’s where I do my best work.”

Going for the best result

“Often I find myself in court, because not everything can be resolved through negotiation. If a dispute goes to court, then I investigate the case from top to bottom. This ensures I am well prepared. I ensure I know the facts inside out, and that I present them clearly and transparently, and go for the best result. That’s my strength.”

Legal profession

“I studied law because I wanted to learn a concrete subject, because I’m ambitious and love to tackle problems head on. At home, I was always the one who organised things and solved problems. While I was still studying, I spent a lot of time with lawyers and learned how the profession worked in practice. This was really interesting. This meant that being called to the Bar as a lawyer in 2010 was a conscious choice for me.”

Entrepreneurial spirit at Van Till

“I started my legal career at a firm of administrators, but I wanted to broaden my horizons. I moved to Van Till in 2008. It was immediately clear that the atmosphere was really good. There’s a real entrepreneurial spirit at Van Till, which really suits me. Everyone is able to respond quickly. I’m able to expand my own practice, and I’m given every opportunity to develop myself.”
