After obtaining his bachelor’s and master’s (International Trade and Investment Law; Private Law (commercial practice), cum laude) degrees at the University of Amsterdam, Hidde Kleijn was admitted to the bar in 2020. He spent three years at one of the larger law firms in Amsterdam, where he litigated and advised on corporate and commercial matters, working for a variety of clients ranging from private citizens and small businesses to large corporations and insurance companies. In this role, Hidde gained broad litigation experience, including in proceedings before the Netherlands Commercial Court and Enterprise Chamber. 

During his previous work, it became clear to Hidde that he is especially passionate about representing the interests of people and small businesses whose interests have been harmed by large corporations. For this reason, Hidde decided to join Pogust Goodhead in June 2023.
