About Tom van Malssen


Tom specialises in appeal litigation and cassation across the civil spectrum. He heads the cassation practice at Dirkzwager. Tom is also deputy judge at the District Court of 's-Hertogenbosch. In addition, Tom is involved in management consultancy, participation in healthcare and conflicts between healthcare providers/medical specialist companies and medical specialists.

Before moving into the legal profession, Tom spent several years working as a lecturer and researcher in the(international) academic world. In 2011, Tom obtained his PhD in philosophy and he is the author of various political and philosophical publications.

Tom's move from academia to the legal profession was inspired by Cicero's complaint about Cato the Elder: Dicit tamquam in Platonis politeiai, non tamquam in Romuli faece sententiam. Translated: he speaks as though he lived in Plato's Republic, and not among the dregs of Romulus.
