Whether it is a single legal question or a full-blown court case staring you in the face: you have a legal issue and you need someone in your corner.
Someone to bring clarity and explain your position to you in the words we learn from our parents; not in the word spaghetti, the legal profession is notorious for.
Someone who will be honest with you, good news or bad. Someone who will fight for you, good times or bad.
You need someone at Murray Attorneys at Law.
THE HUMAN FACTOR
Setting us apart from other firms, are our people and not just their knowledge, skills and years of experience. It’s especially the shared belief shaped by that experience that marks the Murray approach. The belief that in everything we do, we are humans helping humans.
A private person or multinational corporations, we help our clients the way would want to be helped ourselves: with the exclusive, cost-effective solutions that can only come from an ultra-personalized and straightforward approach in which we work with the client rather than for the client.
A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER
“When I started out with this firm, I defined our offering as ultra-personalized, to-the-point, exclusive, straight forward and cost effective law advise, where needed to be backed by representation in court proceedings.
We believe in a straightforward approach to practising law in which going above and beyond is the new normal rather than the exceptional. We have not wavered in that commitment. On the contrary: when circumstances are such that we cannot give a client our all, we will turn that client down, regretfully.
When we do take you on as a client, however, be assured of our 100% effort. Above and beyond.”
Our firm represents clients in Curaçao, the Dutch Caribbean, Suriname, the Netherlands, the US and China.
With Curaçao being the financial services and business hub that it is, we are optimally situated to support and represent international clients in the region.Show more +
Karan was born and raised in Dordrecht, the Netherlands. Karan was sworn in as a Lawyer in 2008 and began his career as a lawyer in Dordrecht. He practiced a general civil practice there. After completing his training as a lawyer, Karan's practice continued to grow and he increasingly focused his practice on contract law. Here Karan was employed to draft and review custom commercial contracts, but also to participate in contract negotiations, for example in the context of the purchase or sale of ships or the acquisition of companies. Much of Karan's practice at the time related to the maritime world and its affiliated suppliers. Much of the practice was conducted in English even then.
Some years later, Karan made the choice to move to Curaçao to further specialize and develop as a lawyer. Karan's practice here in Curaçao focuses on corporate law in the broadest sense of the word. For example, Karan advises entrepreneurs on disputes in which directors' liability plays or may play a role, but also in the context of shareholder disputes, takeovers and restructuring of companies. In addition, Karan assists entrepreneurs who approach him with questions about contractual matters. This may involve assessing already existing commercial contracts, but also attending contract negotiations or drafting such contracts 'from scratch'. Furthermore, Karan litigates with some regularity in Curacao, but also on the other islands that fall within the scope of the Common Court of Justice here. The legal proceedings Karan handles are often of a corporate, contract or general civil nature.
Besides practicing law, Karan is a guest lecturer at the University of Curacao. There he teaches various civil subjects including (in-depth) Business Law and Contract Law. Not only being a lawyer, but also teaching is a deep-rooted passion of Karan. Even before his graduation, Karan was already teaching regularly and still does so with great pleasure. In this way Karan tries to contribute to the development of the new generation of jurists and lawyers on and also outside of Curacao.
In his spare time Karan enjoys the beautiful things in life. For Karan these include traveling to faraway and often diverse destinations, but Karan can also enjoy a nice dinner and drinks with good friends, preferably at a sunny location.
