mr. P.Q. (Phyllis) Besems, LL.M., Attorney-at-Law

“I carry on until I achieve my goal.”

Phyllis is a dedicated lawyer, who hates to sit still and who enjoys new challenges. She has a targeted and vigorous approach, always with the interests of the client as her main focal point. As the regular lawyer for a large group of SME entrepreneurs, she is the point of contact to provide legal advice and assistance. Among other things, Phyllis can be approached on matters concerning corporate law, law of obligations, and law of contracts. Together with the receivers of our firm, she is also actively involved with settling a large number of bankruptcies. Her preference for a vigorous approach is also evidenced in one of her favourite pastimes, heading out on a track on her racing motorcycle.
