Practice domains: Liability and Insurance, Contracts and General conditions , Real estate and Spatial planning

Bram runs a broad international advisory and litigation practice with a focus on business law, real estate and trade law.

He advises enterprises in both the "wet" and dry construction sectors, project developers and other SME entrepreneurs, primarily in drawing up and assessing contracts concerning real estate, acquisitions and other trade agreements and in conducting legal proceedings in those areas. Property law, particularly attachment and foreclosure law, occupies a special place in his practice, with primarily banks and notaries as clients.

Bram enjoys immersing himself in his clients' "business". This contributes to well-honed recommendations and to the prevention of conflicts. Legal proceedings are a means and not an end and should be deployed only once other possibilities have been exhausted.

Bram studied applied physics at TU Delft and then studied law at the Rijksuniversiteit in Leiden. He graduated there in 1995 with majors in both civil law and business law. Bram was admitted to the bar in that same year and joined the firm at Van Dam & Kruidenier, where he has been a partner since 2005.

Bram is the chairman of Eurojuris Nederland, the Dutch chapter of the international collaborative partnership Eurojuris International, of which Van Dam & Kruidenier is a member. Bram was a co-founder and chairman of the Practice Group International Trade, Transport and Insurance for Eurojuris International. He is also a guest lecturer for post-grad education at Erasmus University in Rotterdam and provides in-house knowledge sessions for various clients.
