Tijs has been working at Holla in the Corporate Law team since September 2020. Characteristics of Tijs are his calm way of working, his clear way of communicating and his practical approach.
Tijs completed his studies in Utrecht and Leiden. In addition to his studies, Tijs worked as a legal assistant at Gadellaa Advocatuur, and was a volunteer at the Utrechtse Heuvelrug Legal Shop.
After successfully completing his Civil Law master’s degree in Leiden, he wasn’t done studying. In 2019 Tijs went to Montréal (Canada) for a year, where he further specialized in private international law and comparative law. He also learned to speak French fluently.
In his spare time, Tijs is a real sports fan. Rowing, playing football or playing squash, but he prefers the badminton court. Furthermore, he developed a fondness for Canada during his time in Montréal. This means you can always wake him up for a poutine – Québec’s national dish.
