Jasper van Mens
Enjoying your work, not losing sight of the human aspect and daring to take (calculated) risks. Doing business in the new economy means empathising, short lines, taking decisions and moving on.
Jasper van Mens is an entrepreneur and lawyer specialised in corporate law. He is frequently asked to advise directors of, for example, investment companies, tech companies and businesses in the creative sector.
In the new economy developments are taking place at lightning speed and almost everything has intentional or unintentional legal consequences. Jasper is an experienced lawyer who is aware of what is going on and feels at home among passionate and smart entrepreneurs. He is strategic and resolute and has a practical attitude. This makes him an excellent sparring partner.
Jasper advises shareholders, directors and members of the supervisory board on the legal possibilities and likes to contribute to their businesses’ development and profitability. He also has experience with the litigating for leading companies on a wide range of issues, including director’s liability, transaction-related disputes, the liability of financial institutions and disputes between shareholders. Jasper knows exactly where the legal bottlenecks are and likes drawing up tactical plans with entrepreneurs.
Jasper has registered corporate law and litigation law in the legal register of the Dutch Bar Association. On the basis of this registration, Jasper must obtain ten permanent education points in every main registered jurisdiction every year in accordance with the standards of the Dutch Bar Association.
