Frank Dekkers


Frank started his career with one of the big Dutch banks, but soon realised that the law was his true vocation. “I like helping people solve their problems. If you’re in a dispute with someone and you can’t agree on a solution together, the only way to enforce your rights is by starting legal proceedings with the aid of a lawyer.”

Frank joined RWV Advocaten in 1999, specialising initially in insolvency law and company law, but gradually turned his attention more and more to property law. He now deals exclusively with civil-law cases involving property-related issues such as tenancy, property sales, apartment rights and construction. He takes a particular interest in the property-related aspects of insolvency and bankruptcy.

Frank has also specialised in the law of procedure (and procedural tactics) in recent years.
