Huib Hielkema & sharing experience

Name giver and nestor. Huib Hielkema pledged his heart to tenancy law in the 1980s. And that passion never died down after that. On the contrary. Colleagues previously named Huib one of the best tenancy law attorneys in the country. He has a lot of knowledge and experience. And likes to share it, for example with clients and colleagues. Huib publishes articles in professional journals. Hosts seminars and lectures. He is a former member of the Tenancy Law Advisory Committee of the Dutch Bar Association. And he fights to improve legislation in the field of tenancy law. In whatever he does, Huib always keeps an eye on the person behind the case.

After his law studies (1978-1984), Huib worked at the Legal Aid Office in Amsterdam. In 1991 he started as a partner at Unger Hielkema advocaten. As of January 1, 2015 Huib is a partner at Hielkema & co.
