Our team of government experts acts for private and public organisations. We advise and litigate for project developers and investors, (managers, directors, or major shareholders of) medium-sized companies and legal departments of multinationals. In addition, we have been appointed as the legal counsel of several government bodies, including provinces, municipalities, water boards and semi-public authorities.

Accessibility and short lines of communication are things we value in our practice. We are experienced legal counsels, but we will also act as a sparring partner for our clients. We are aware that it is not always necessary to provide extensive legal advice or to start a procedure. Sometimes exchanging views at an early stage can prevent or solve a matter.

What can we do for you?
