Folkert Baars, lawyer

The jurisprudence has always been a subject of large interest for me. In the beginning, becoming a lawyer was not intended. This changed though during my internship. Was really caught my eye and influenced my passion towards this career path is the contact with clients, being in the lookout for the right solutions and also the freedom within arrangements. My specialisation in the field of transport and insurance law started developing unintended in 1993. Within my 24 year long career as a lawyer, my affection towards these law fields increased steadily. Barely any other law field is as complex and can offer such an international bearing as the fields of transport, insurance and commercial law.

Outside of my career in the law sector, studying history is a place of inner peace for me. Specifically the antique Roman history, which shows many similarities to today’s time and until today, has a large impact of modern society.
