    Corporate law team

    Corporate law lawyers who think both from a business perspective and from the law book. That’s our trademark. Not simply listing the rules, but applying the law in the context of your company, so we can prevent and solve corporate law issues together. To that end, we apply a multidisciplinary approach: the team is tailored to your issue. And when extra support from an accountant or tax specialist is needed, we will provide it.

    Corporate law has common ground with employment law, trade, industry and logistics and sometimes also with property law and environmental law and customs, sanctions and export control. That is the advantage of a full-service firm: we are as small as possible and as large as necessary.
