Rein Kronenberg graduated from Leiden University and has been practicing law since 1989. He started his career with De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek and subsequently worked in private practice at Stibbe and Clifford Chance in Amsterdam and London, with focus on corporate, commercial and financial law, advising on both litigation and transactions.

Rein alternated his time as an attorney in private practice with positions as general counsel of Randstad N.V., global leader in the HR industry, senior counsel for alternative investments at APG Asset Management, the Dutch pension fund manager with more than EURO 600 AuM and – in an interim capacity – as company secretary and head legal of TOM Holding N.V., the former Amsterdam based options exchange and broker owned by ABN AMRO, Nasdaq, Binck Bank, Optiver and IMC. Before joining VIOTTA as a partner in September 2021, Rein founded and practiced law at Kronenberglegal in Amsterdam.


Rein has a broad experience in corporate law and financial law, both as a transaction lawyer and as a litigator. The combination of having worked as a lawyer with renowned, internationally operating commercial law firms in Amsterdam, London and New York and as inhouse counsel at a listed multinational at one of the world’s biggest institutional asset managers, as well as at an option exchange with entrepreneurial genes means that Rein has a wealth of experience and expertise to help address the variety of events and challenges that his clients might have to deal with from time to time.
