Freek Snippers is a partner at HDK. He studied at Maastricht University, specializing in employment and employee participation law, insolvency law and corporate law. Since the end of 2001, Freek has been advising and litigating in employment law and employee participation law. Freek assists employers, statutory directors and employees, but also advises trade unions and works councils. In addition to employment and employee participation law, Freek has been appointed as a trustee more than 60 times during the crisis years (2007 to 2015). This has ensured that Freek is pre-eminently familiar with recovery issues and does not only look at these issues from an employment law perspective. Freek likes to advise and think along pragmatically as an entrepreneur. Prior to joining HDK, Freek spent 18 years at a medium-sized law firm in Amsterdam, the last 7 years as a partner.
