It was announced today that Sander Dekker, Dutch Minister for Legal Protection, has set up an Insolvency Law Committee of which Teun Struycken has become a member. The new committee will be advising lawmakers on bankruptcy law, the suspension of payments scheme, and the statutory debt rescheduling scheme for natural persons. Its opinions will be largely juristic in nature, with the committee paying special attention to the functionality of legislation for legal practice.
“This is a splendid appointment,” says Petra Zijp. “Not only does it confirm Teun’s enormous expertise in this area, but it also makes crystal clear how relevant NautaDutilh’s work is to society and how we step up when we are called upon to contribute. On behalf of everyone at the firm, I’d like to congratulate Teun on his appointment.”
The committee has eight members and is chaired by P.M. Veder, professor of International Insolvency Law. The other members are: Dr B.J. Engberts, counsel; Dr F.A. van Tilburg, lawyer; J.C.A.T. Frima, examining judge; S. Jansen, lawyer; W.J.M. van Andel, trustee; and W.G.M. Holterman, professor of Business Valuation.
