Mr. A.G. Zijlstra



Alex Zijlstra has been with Wijn & Stael since 2019, concentrating his practice on corporate law and M&A. He counsels director and principal stockholders, family businesses and investors in mergers and acquisitions, corporate (re)structuring and joint ventures. He also drafts and negotiates commercial contracts.

Pragmatic and Deliberative

Alex is a pragmatic and results-driven attorney with a deliberative approach to finding the best solution for his clients. With skill and attention to detail, Alex has a natural talent for stepping back and taking stock of a situation - especially when pressure is mounting - before pursuing a strategy that delivers the best long-term outcome for his client. “I’m intrigued by the complexity and dynamics of proceedings and acquisition processes. I like to get to the bottom of things, bring order and structure to them and use my legal knowledge to help clients achieve their goals.”

Knowledge of Class Actions

During his master’s program, Alex conducted comparative research on class action litigation in the United States and the Netherlands. He has also served as a volunteer and board member for the legal aid center Rechtswinkel Groningen.
