Carole van Kesteren

Carole is a legal consultant and partner at Lustrous Law. She was born in Delft and grew up in the Rotterdam area. With more than 20 years’ experience in national and international corporate law practice at  Loyens & Loeff in Rotterdam and at a midsize firm of lawyers and civil law notaries in Amsterdam, she and Henk ten Voorde set up Lustrous Law.

As a legal consultant, she has specialised in national and cross-border corporate law, M&A and private equity for national and international companies and individuals. She also has considerable experience in setting up, completing and maintaining international structures in the Netherlands. She is a member of the International Fiscal Association (IFA) and of the Royal “Industrieele Groote Club” in Amsterdam.

Her work focuses on a number of jurisdictions including various CIS nations, Central and South America, the Caribbean islands and certain EU member states. This means that she often travels to these countries to visit existing and potential clients and their advisors there. She regularly gives presentations on legal matters relating to national and international corporate law, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

She likes traveling, attending football matches (especially those of her favourite team Feyenoord), cars, watches & sunglasses and is above all genuinely interested in other people.  Despite the fact that she has been working in Amsterdam for quite some time, Carole always lived in the Rotterdam area, but recently found a pied-à-terre in Amsterdam.
