About Stefan Kleijer


Stefan joined Dirkzwager at the employment law department in 2020 and was admitted to the bar in 2021.

Stefan is, among other things, very much engaged in amending (collective) employment conditions and co-determination in a broad sense. Furthermore, Stefan is part of the 'Pension' department, advising on all facets of pension law. Nowadays focusing particularly on the upcoming Future Pensions Act ("Wet toekomst pensioenen"). Finally, Stefan has knowledge in the field of labour migration which allows him to act as a gateway for companies who wish to hire foreign employees in an increasingly globalised labour market.

Stefan is characterised by his accessibility and clear advice. He is able to make complex issues understandable, which enables the client to act immediately. In his spare time, Stefan is a keen runner, plays football (from an early age) and reviews and plays (board) games.
