He regularly advises on public offers, buyouts, controlled auction sales, growth capital investments and complex disentanglements. Lennart has ample experience with transactions for private equity clients and other financial sponsors. He also acts for strategic parties and is well-versed across a broad range of sectors, including technology, media and software. He regularly leads multi-jurisdictional transactions, with or without a Dutch connection, and often works with leading international law firms on their multi-jurisdictional deals. Lawyers and insurers consult Lennart in the field of W&I insurance.

Lennart's financial acumen, gained during his MBA at Columbia Business School, enables him to translate financial aspects into deal strategy, negotiations and transaction documentation. Clients appreciate the combination of his helicopter view and attention to detail.

Sources describe him as "efficient and creative", "customer-centric, very proactive", "brings parties together", "a pragmatic and experienced M&A lawyer who keeps his eye on the prize, prioritising what needs to be prioritised", “very responsive, commercial and solution oriented”, “good negotiator”, and “has deep knowledge of both legal and financial matters”.

By way of pro bono work, Lennart served in Kosovo, after the declaration of independence from Serbia, as visiting attorney for the Legal Unit with the International Civilian Office and EU Special Representative.
