Roangelo Lodewijks new addition to SMS Attorneys at Law


On Monday, December 1st 2014, Mr. Roangelo Lodewijks, LL.M. became employed at SMS Attorneys at Law. Lodewijks, born and raised on Curaçao first started with the study Financial Services Management and subsequently Dutch Law. In 2012 he attained his Master’s Degree from the University of Utrecht with a specialization in criminal law.

Throughout the course of his studies Roangelo first got employment with the Rabobank, which was an excellent combination with his study in Financial Services. During the time that Roangelo was studying law including the following years he got the opportunity to develop his knowledge and skills at ABN AMRO Bank and the world leader Deutsche Bank N.V. Roangelo made good use of the knowledge he gained throughout the years and was able to bring that into practice during a successful migration between ABN AMRO and Deutsche Bank from his position in the Deutsche Bank Credit Risk Management department. This success combined with his proactive personality and attention to detail resulted in a promotion in a short period of time.

The urge to be engaged in the advocacy was stronger which resulted in Lodewijks, regardless of his career in the financial services sector, to pursue a career in the advocacy. He followed his heart and came back to Curaçao where he attached himself to our firm.

Roangelo is pending to be sworn in as an attorney at law at the Commune Court of Appeal.
