About Arno Stoffelsma


Arno Stoffelsma qualified as a performing musician in 2004 and has been the lead clarinetist of the Gelderland Orchestra (Het Gelders Orkest) since 2007. He also plays with other orchestras on a regular basis, including the Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition to his passion for music, the legal profession has always held great interest for him and this prompted him to take up a law degree in 2010. After obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Legal Studies with distinction from VU University Amsterdam, he entered into service with the IP/IT group at Dirkzwager. The intellectual property practice offers a compelling combination between the arts and the legal profession.
