Dutch, English, German
We believe in a personal relationship with our clients. We ensure that a second lawyer within the firm is familiar with a case, so that even when the usual lawyer is not present, there is always someone who can speak with the client.
Our target group covers a wide spectrum:
Our clients operate at both the national and international level, and we provide support in various fields. For instance, we advise them on drawing up standard terms and conditions and concluding contracts with third parties, such as leases, employment contracts and collaboration agreements.
If problems arise in the execution of a contract, we endeavour to reach a settlement with the other party.
If a settlement is not possible, we institute proceedings for our client, also in cases against government authorities.
We assist businesses in laying down the legal aspects of a change in their company structure, preferably in consultation with their accountant and their principal bank.
We also have extensive experience in advising non-profit organisations, such as public benefit organisations and government bodies.
