Matthijs (A.M.) Bos, lawyer

“Less talk, more action!”

This mentality will be familiar to anyone who knows Rotterdam and it certainly reflects my own approach. I very much enjoy the work I do, and no two days are ever the same. I love the fact that my role as legal adviser gives me the opportunity to help a client’s company progress on a daily basis. I’m fully committed to working closely with the client in order to achieve their objectives, and in the courtroom, my aim is to win the case!

I’m an experienced lawyer, with a focus on employment law, contract law (including internationally), liability law and legal proceedings. Being internationally oriented, I am active within our LAWorld network. I travel for our network several times a year, and provide advice to my clients in various languages on a daily basis.

To clear my head, I enjoy playing sport. I especially love football, tennis and running. I also enjoy relaxing by tinkering with my 1964 Citroen Ami 6: it’s a project in which there is, fortunately, always something that needs doing.

Areas of focus:
Labour law, employee participation law, (international) contract law, privacy law, liability law and procedural law.

Practising since:
1996
