Maarten van Ingen

Maarten van Ingen.  Partner/lawyer

The perfect assessment of matters, especially in conflict situations. That really sums up Maarten. Maarten is committed, a strong strategist and he clarifies issues he encounters. He gets results. Building confidence.


Clients often refer to him as a strategist. That makes sense. Maarten is a master in the art of assessing the lie of the land. He does this quickly, expertly and with overview. He is a pragmatic and quick thinker too. He always has a plan, a direction, a path to a solution that no one else could have come up with. He knows, without fail, exactly which legal framework suits each conflict situation, ensuring the desired result is achieved spot on. Maarten gets results, where necessary he takes clients by the hand and manages the situation to take the right steps. Contributing true value.


Maarten studied Dutch Law at Utrecht University. During his studies he wrote his first scientific publications, but also – as an autodidact – computer programmes. With this knowledge he developed software for the settlement of bankruptcies.


After graduating, Maarten became a lawyer and focused on security rights and companies in difficulties, but also on corporate litigation. Maarten has acted as a receiver in (several international) proceedings for over two decades and he provides companies and their directors with support in distressed and restrained situations. Maarten is even appointed Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee of the Netherlands Association of Interpreters and Translators (NGTV). He wrote several books and articles on seizure, securities and insolvency proceedings and publishes in SDU Commentaar Vermogensrecht and SD Commentaar Burgerlijke Rechtsvordering. Up until February 2020, Maarten was the editor of the Tijdschrift voor Curatoren.
