Sil Kingma has worked as an independent lawyer affiliated with &ACT since the 1st of March 2018. He has a great sense of justice, which means he could not but become a lawyer. Has as much, if not more, heart for man and for the cause. Because of his passion for conjuring with words, also called creative writing, is the best accountant among the lawyers. Is, because of his sense of language, also called a poet among the lawyers. This does not mean, however, that he is shunning a performance in court.
He believes in the creed “to understand an entrepreneur, you have to be an entrepreneur yourself”. That is why he has been a self-employed lawyer within &ACT. Helps companies protect and, where possible, increase the value of their IP rights. He feels himself at home on the floodplains of ICT and privacy law.
