Remco Abeln is a Managing Consultant in our Amsterdam office specialising in the recruitment of experienced legal counsel, general counsel, attorneys, privacy officers, contracts managers and compliance professionals for both interim and permanent roles in in-house legal departments and law firms. Remco lives in Oude Wetering with his wife, Laura, daughter and their dog. He loves to be on the water, both recreationally sailing with his family as well as regatta sailing with friends. He also enjoys running or going for walks with his dog. Remco is fluent in both Dutch and English.
In 1996, Remco began his career as a recruiter, identifying candidates for a variety of positions and companies across multiple industries. Since 2001, however, his focus has solely been on the recruitment of legal counsel. Together with his longstanding business partner Nick Spenkelink, he set up and successfully grew two legal interim and search firms before joining Major, Lindsey & Africa in 2018.
