Willemijn Ritsema van Eck has practiced as attorney-at-law specialised in project development, public-private partnership (PPS) and procurement law for the past twenty years. In project development, she regularly advises on the potential overlap between development and awarding contracts. Both governments and market parties can rely on her expertise.
For parties who are involved in area development and project development, Willemijn prefers to start work in the preparatory stage of new developments. Here, she acts as adviser with a broad focus, this including the application of the proper contract for a specific situation, taking into account the commercial interests of both sides. Willemijn prepares the contract documents and is an objective and independent discussion partner in the negotiating stage between the parties involved.
For businesses who participate in tendering procedures, she advises on making strategic choices, the input at Q&A sessions and the formal aspects of the tender. If clients wish to lodge objection against the result of a tender, she supports them with advice on the legal possibilities and prospects open to them. When necessary, Willemijn counsels clients in preliminary proceedings. She is also accomplished in the settlement of alternative forms of disputes.
Her skill is based on her wealth of experience with the market, which dates back to year 2000, and her up-to-date knowledge. Clients value her fast understanding of the market in which they operate and the depth of her extensive expertise. Courtesy of this, she has developed many long-term relationships. With much creativity and a practical approach, she often succeeds in finding a solution, also for complex issues.
