My name is Michiel van Ast. As a senior legal counsel I help companies achieve their goals. By thinking and acting as part of the business team – managing risk, seizing opportunities, drafting agreements and solving disputes, I facilitate the business and add value.

The Dutch word helder means so much as clear, bright, luminous, sonorous, resonant, lucid, comprehensible, unclouded. It reflects my transparent and no-nonsense way of working.

I have wide experience, both as a lawyer at an international law firm and as inhouse legal counsel at different (multinational) companies. Expert on contracting, IT- and telecommunications law. Pragmatic, thorough, business-minded, self-supporting and loyal. Please check my profile on LinkedIn for a more detailed overview of my background and experience.

Competitive and flexible rates apply to my services. My standard hourly rate is EUR 225 (excl. VAT), although we can discuss a fixed fee, depending on the nature and scope of the matter. In the event of an interim assignment, I normally charge an hourly rate of EUR 135 (excl. VAT and travel expenses).

For inquiries, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
