Ginio has been a lawyer since 2002. Clients appreciate his approach because he empathises with their interests and knows that a practical solution often outweighs the importance of a victory. But he also understands the art of litigating on a razor edge and knows how to achieve a successful outcome in complex proceedings.
In his practice, Ginio handles many cases in the field of tenancy law (including leases, terminating a lease or tenancy agreement, and renovations) and purchase transactions. And he regularly assists apartment owners and owners’ association members in disputes concerning apartment rights. Ginio also has extensive experience in property-related administrative law, particularly spatial administrative law (environmental permits, zoning plans, and the Housing Act) and enforcement disputes (administrative coercion and orders subject to a penalty for noncompliance). And because of his broad knowledge of property law, he is also able to advise clients on project development.
Ginio is a member of the Tenancy Lawyers Association and completed the specialist course required for membership cum laude. Ginio is also editor of the magazine Huurrecht In Praktijk (HIP, Tenancy Law in Practice). Ginio has taught for years – including at Radboud University’s Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPO), the Academy for Legal Practice (AVDR, where he presents a webinar) and IPD (estate agents’ training) – and regularly gives lectures on all kinds of property topics.
