Lawdragon Profiles BLB&G Partner Jeroen van Kwawegen in “Lawyer Limelight” Q&A
BLB&G partner Jeroen van Kwawegen is widely recognized as one of the nation’s leading shareholder litigators, having recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors, while improving corporate governance practices at numerous companies, and vindicating fundamental shareholder voting and franchise rights.
Named one of “The 500 Leading Lawyers in America,” the exclusive list curated by Lawdragon magazine, Jeroen was the subject of a “Lawyer Limelight” profile documenting his interesting career path and some of his recent achievements. The profile demonstrates his contributions to how the firm is growing and “getting better” in various ways, including “strengthening the European side of its shareholder practice,” as well as his remarkable personal story, from “working in the tulip fields at age 14 for $1 an hour” in his native Netherlands, to becoming one of the leaders of the BLB&G’s respected Corporate Governance practice and the only European shareholder litigator (and one of the only Europeans ever) to be named to Lawdragon’s exclusive list.
A former instructor with the Dutch military police, he originally went to law school to become a criminal prosecutor until an exchange program with Columbia Law School encouraged him to consider a different, more adventurous life outside the Netherlands. Jeroen’s practice “focuses on the conduct of boards and senior executives,” and his move to Bernstein Litowitz 10 years ago (after practicing at Latham & Watkins in New York) “has enabled him to litigate for the public good on behalf of wronged shareholders in the U.S. and abroad.”
The profile covers significant aspects of his professional and personal life.
