New attorney VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne

As per 1 February law firm VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne has a new attorney on Curacao: Dirk Ormel.

Dirk studied at the University of Leiden and graduated in 2011 in Public International Law. He studied at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa for half a year during his bachelor. In 2009 he worked as a trainee with Pels Rijcken & Droogleever Fortuijn in The Hague in the Civil Litigation practice group and in 2011 with Böhler Advocaten in Amsterdam in the International Law practice group. He was also an intern at the Dutch Embassy in Rwanda with the Justice and Good Governance department.

Dirk Ormel recently received three prizes for his international criminal law thesis on Congo “Ne pas tuer la poule aux oeufs d’or”, freely translated “Don’t kill the chicken with the golden eggs”. The title refers to the passive attitude of the international community with regard to the natural resources related conflict in Congo.

Dirk moved from the Netherlands to Curacao a month ago. He chose VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne because he wanted to work for a firm that operates both locally and internationally, for a wide range of client industries. He was attracted to this island for the possibilities to exercise three of his favourite leisure activities: travelling, diving and (wind)surfing.
