Lawyers for business

About us

Lawyers Rotterdam Netherlands

We are a law firm in Rotterdam focused on legal services to businesses. Because of the knowledge of de various industries our lawyers have an advantage : they know what is happening in the business of the entrepreneur and are focused on practical solutions. We often act as "house lawyer": a solid and trusted point of contact for a company for all legal questions.

Of course, our services are of a high professional quality. Equally important are our working methods : committed, transparent and prompt.
