Menno de Wijs is an enthusiastic professional, with a wealth of detailed knowledge and a goal-oriented approach.
Education and career
Menno graduated in Civil Law from Leiden University in 2009 and wrote his dissertation on the topic of ‘Legal Protection in Tenders’. He immediately started his legal career at De Clercq. Eager to continue developing, Menno has attended professional courses and study days on an almost constant basis since his graduation, including at the Postgraduate Legal Education Centre at Leiden University and the Academy for Legal Practice.
Menno’s daily practice
“I have a litigation-oriented practice and deal with issues in the field of IT law, including, in particular, IT procurement law. I advise clients on the application of award criteria, the question whether an agreement may be (substantially) amended and I advise on the chances of success of interim injunction proceedings against a proposed award decision.
Where necessary, I litigate at the cutting edge. As winner of the 2012 Hague pleading competition, I do so with complete conviction and with the latest case law in hand.
