Our beloved partner and colleague Adriaan de Buck passed away on 21 December 2022. Last August he retired from his Corporate Law practice at Ekelmans Advocaten due to his illness.
Adriaan was a natural unifier and optimist.
Clients and international partners speak highly of Adriaan commending him for his expertise, commitment and personal approach.
For his expert and entrepreneurial work as a lawyer and partner of our firm, we are grateful to Adriaan.
Working with Adriaan was a pleasure: he had a warm sense of humor and was a great sportsman in so many regards. From 2019, he combined his law practice with the chairmanship of his club, HBS, where he also played football.
Over a year ago, he became ill. Last summer, the whole firm bid him farewell as one of the partners of Ekelmans Advocaten. At that farewell, Adriaan recalled the many memorable times he spent with us in the long time he was part of the firm.
We cherish our fond memories of Adriaan and admire his strength and resilience in battling his illness. Of special note is Adriaan’s unflagging interest for others, right up to the last moment.
We miss Adriaan and extend our deepest condolences to Margot, Jolein, Bram and Jip.
