    Lawyer – Pro Bono (Dutch Tenancy/Labour Law)

    As a lawyer, I specialise in tenancy law, labour law, IP law (copyright law), corporate law and procedural law.

    My girlfriend studied Russian in Amsterdam and lived in Kyiv for a while. She speaks and reads Russian if necessary.

    If you need legal support in the Netherlands, I can help. I’m a “sociaal advocaat” as they say in the Netherlands; this basically means taking cases pro bono or supported by government funding for people who cannot afford legal support.

    I can imagine I could help if you run into trouble with your landlord, employer or publisher.
