Who's Who Legal Corporate Immigration

Bram van Melle is a partner and co-head of the firm’s corporate immigration practice. His practice focuses on business immigration. His client base is quite diverse, ranging from large multinational companies in need of high-volume application work, to start-ups and individuals.

Bram provides strategic advice to the firm’s multinational corporate clients, helping them to maintain compliance with immigration laws and regulations. He is committed to providing tailor-made counsel and a high level of service.

His application work includes all employment-related categories as well as complex sponsor registration applications and treaty investor and entrepreneur applications for clients from the US, Japan and Turkey.

His court work involves representing employers in appeals against employer sanctions and private clients in appeals against refusals and revocations, notably if there are elements of EU law.

Bram is a well sought-after expert on Dutch nationality law and is often asked to advise clients living abroad who seek to retain Dutch nationality or acquire it by naturalisation or entitlement.

Bram is a contributing co-editor to Asiel&Migrantenrecht, the leading Netherlands’ immigration law review. He is frequently invited to speak at international conferences, including AILA and IBA and is a guest lecturer at VU Amsterdam University.

Bram is a member of the WRV (the Dutch professional organisation for immigration attorneys), the IBA, and AILA, and vice chair of its GMS membership committee. 

Before joining Everaert, Bram worked at the Ministry of Security and Justice and the Ministry of Interior Affairs and Kingdom Relations.

WWL says: Bram van Melle "is very fast and responsive and is always on top of the changes in law", say clients.
