WILLEMSTAD - Under the supervising eyes of family and colleagues Tjarda Tazelaar and Vin Soeltaansingh were sworn in at the Courthouse of Curaçao on Tuesday January 29. Both are working in the Corporate and Banking section at the Curaçao office branch of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne.
 
Tjarda Tazelaar is a senior associate and an expert in the field of corporate law. He is specialized in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, private equity and corporate governance. Prior to joining VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne in Curaçao, he was nine years at the Law firm VanDoorne established in Amsterdam, where he was part of the Corporate/M&A team.

Vin Soeltaansingh is working at VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne as a junior associate since June 2018.
