Mayesi, a Curacao native, is a member of the Social Economic Council (SER) and an alternate member of the Board of Trustees for Attorneys at Law.

Both attorneys will continue to practice in full. Next to legal expertise, VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne is praised for its practical knowledge of the client sectors that firm serves, for instance by independent legal publisher Chambers & Partners. Lunsingh Scheurleer "Under Frank's leadership, our organization made an enormous progress for which we are all very grateful. Mayesi, Esther and I are proud to serve our fantastic organization. We will continue on the foundation that is laid over the past years and make further advancements where appropriate."
