Welcome to Servaas Feiertag Consultancy
My name is Servaas Feiertag, I am an international independent consultant and live in Berlin, Germany. I mostly work in the areas of rule of law, good governance, acces to justice, (anti) corruption and organisational development.
With this website I like to present myself for new assignments and for cooperation with other experts.

In my work I meet and work with many different people. Here you find some references of people that I have worked with in the past.
I’ve gotten to know Servaas as a very professional and experienced trainer/moderator, who is very committed to deliver good results. Preparations of the trainings on good governance were always developed with care and he was always flexible and able to adapt the approach or the content of the training, if participants appeared to have additional needs or interests.Mr. Alberto Costa, OECD Tunisia
Servaas reported to me as principal legal counsel at the international secretariat of Transparency International. He set up the legal unit and demonstrated strong technical analytical and management skills together with the ability to effectively interact with TI staff at the secretariat and the movement.Mr. Miklos Marschall, Deputy Managing Director International Secretariat of Transparency International
Servaas assisted us as a technical expert in the area of good governance and rule of law in the GIZ GGC programme in Yemen between 2017-2020. He is a true professional and a committed team player, who can work in a wide range of areas and topics in various capacities; as a researcher, senior expert, trainer and management consultant. He has a depth and range of knowledge regarding international development issues, which is hard to match. His work is always of high quality and he is very pleasant to work with. Servaas adds extremely high value to any project that he is involved with and is one of the highest-calibre consultants with whom I have ever worked.Ms. Arwa Hassan, GIZ Programme Director Yemen Good Governance Cluster
I have gotten to know Servaas through projects in Tunisa and North Macedonia and we have worked very well together. He can do technical as well as researcher work. In addition he is reliable as senior expert and Team leader. He is an allround professional that I trust to deliver what he has promised.Anne Spanheim, senior project manager CILC
I’m glad to recommend Mr Servaas Feiertag who occupied the function of Senior Expert/Team Leader/Trainer on programmes working on Rule of Law, Access to Justice, Legal Empowerment and Corruption in Sub Sahara Africa and the Middle East at government and/or grassroots level at Transparency International. He is very honourable, at the same time sociable and directive to his colleagues and collaborators. He brings a lot of professionalism in his work. I am convinced that Mr Servaas Feiertag possesses the skills necessity in his fields of expertise in particular in the driving of the teams, the programs on the law and the justice in the international environment.Holy Razafinrandretsa, Advocacy and Communication officer TI Madagascar
Working closely together with Servaas as partner during the ‘early days of the Internet’ at the startup of our Internet company was a wonderful experience. A real visionary, creative and sharp. Oh yes and he is witty 🙂Bart Overes, Cofounder Moving Target and cofounder @msterdam
Adeline Tibakweitira, Senior Project Manager CILC: Servaas and I have worked on projects in Sub Sahara Africa in 2006 to 2009 where he implemented various projects for different donors and beneficiaries. I enjoyed working with Servaas, who was not only a project leader but a coach and mentor to colleagues and partners he worked with. He has done tremendous work at CILC supporting capacity building of law faculties, training and legal institutions. In the past three years Servaas and I have collaborated in a capacity building project in Rwanda for the Kigali International Arbitration Centre. In this project, Servaas conducted an organisational assessments, market research and provided technical training to the staff of KIAC. His work is of high quality and very relevant for the institutions we work with. Servaas adapts easily to the environment he works in and understands well the local context. He loves being among friends and colleagues and enjoy to work with people.Adeline Tibakweitira, Senior Project Manager CILC
As an international consultant I work in different roles. Sometimes I am hired as a senior expert for my technical knowledge and skills in an advisory role or as a researcher to conduct applied research. In other projects I develop training materials and deliver professional courses for senior staff of public institutions and civil society as a trainer and I also manage international teams of experts as a team leader or lead expert. I feel happy and comfortable in all these different roles and actually enjoy the diversity of my work. It keeps me fresh and motivated to learn and develop myself while it allows me to work with many interesting people in different circum-stances.
I hold academic degrees in law (LL.M) and Public Administration (MSc). In my career I have worked on many different topics and themes within the rule of law, such as justice reform, access to justice and organisational development of organisations in the justice sector, both in public institutions and civil society.
In recent years I have practiced law as the principal legal counsel of Transparency International and have increasingly worked on themes such as good governance, anti corruption, strategic communication and organisational development.
Throughout the years I have worked in more than 30 countries in South East Asia, Sub Sahara Africa, MENA region and in the Balkans as well. Recently I have worked a lot in the MENA region, especially in Tunisia and Yemen and South East Europe and will continue be involved as a senior expert in several projects in Sub Sahara Africa in 2020, such as Rwanda and Uganda.
It is a pleasure to be allowed to work in such different places; it has taught me a lot about intercultural communication, respect for the local context and the need to be flexible to find ways to effectively work together.
