Gert-Jan van Dalen


I've always been service-minded, with a genuine interest in people and processes and an admiration for entrepreneurs (who I view as the backbone of our society). I found out during my studies that people valued my advice, and I was able to quickly grasp the gist of large amounts of text and translate them into hands-on advice or work products. Putting all that together makes M&A my natural habitat.

With an endurance sports mindset, I can bring the energy and pragmatism that are needed to pull off the long hauls. My clients benefit from my experience as in-house counsel for over six years, where I learned to look beyond the 'legal realm'. In feedback, clients praise me for truly advising, not merely presenting alternatives or options.
