Spigt Dutch Caribbean
I live in the Dutch Caribbean (Curaçao) with my wife, Carla, and our two daughters, Yvette and Pascale.
I have three confessions. First, I am an attorney. Second, I’m not sure what made me decide to become an attorney. Third, I seem to be pretty good at what I do.
Most people, including my clients, think that I am a professional with a sense of humor, open-minded, and full of energy.
When I am not working, you will not find me....
I am a partner at Spigt Dutch Caribbean (f.k.a. Spigthoff Attorneys at Law & Tax Advisers) and belong to both the Amsterdam Bar (the Netherlands) and the Dutch Caribbean Bar. Also, I am Honorary Consul of Germany in Curacao, St. Maarten, Bonaire, St. Eustatius & Saba, and a former two-term President of the Curacao Bar Association (2008 – 2012).
I really like practicing in the Dutch Caribbean because it’s a perfect mix: working in an almost tropical environment and getting paid for it too...
My specialties are corporate law, banking law, securities law and e-commerce.
What else have I done?
1. Serving as a lecturer at the University of the Netherlands Antilles on 'conflict of laws' (international private law) and corporate law.
2. Providing commentaries on corporate and securities case law developments.
3. Writing about Dutch and Dutch Caribbean law. And it is true indeed: I am the author of the leading legal text book on Dutch Caribbean (including Aruba) corporate law (2nd edition 2006; 340 pages). Have you ever visited Karel's Legal Blog?
4. Participating in the Business & Law Research Centre, Radboud University of Nijmegen.
