Pieter van den Oord

Pieter has been a lawyer at the La Gro Geelkerken law firm since 2007. Over the period 2019-2021, he was the firm’s managing partner. Drawing on his experience as a lawyer and director, he assists entrepreneurs in mergers and acquisitions, shareholder disputes, and other strategic processes. He also heads up the firm’s Procurement Law, Competition Law, and State Aid team. Pieter tells it like it is, sets the strategy, and will take care of things for you. He likes to think ahead: a stich in time saves nine. In his free time, he spends a lot of time behind a chess board.
