Mr. W. de Vries

Willem de Vries is specialised in inheritance law, employment law, real estate and disciplinary law. Due to his broad practical knowledge, empathy and years of experience, he is a sought-after sparring partner for clients and colleagues. As a member of the council of the local bar and the local bar president, Willem de Vries was active in the board of The Hague local bar for many years. Particularly in this capacity, he has built up a great deal of expertise in advising and mediating in business and other conflicts. The combination of practical and management experience and his many years of experience as a deputy district court judge in Delft (since 1994) make him a thorough, versatile lawyer, a 'trusted adviser'. Willem regularly represents client in court. Advocating is in his blood, but his motto is 'litigate if necessary, settle if possible'.

Willem started in 1978 at Pels Rijcken & Droogleever Fortuijn in The Hague, where he was a partner from 1984 to 2006 and the deputy state lawyer from 1996 to 2006. In 2006 he joined Krans & van Hilten Advocaten as a partner which later became Van Hilten Advocaten & Mediators.

As of 1 November 2020, he continued his practice at ScheerSanders Advocaten, where he performs his work through WDV Legal at his own expense and risk. Willem is not employed by ScheerSanders Advocaten and is not part of ScheerSanders' partnership either. ScheerSanders' complaints procedure does not apply to him. Willem uses his own terms and conditions (via WDV Legal).

Willem is a member of the Association of Tenancy Lawyers (VHA). Willem is married and has four children.
