About our Corporate/M&A team
The team acts mainly for nationally and internationally-operating businesses and their shareholders, private equity and venture capital investors, financial institutions and co-investing management teams.
We aim to be the firm of choice for mid-market transactions. Listings in various legal directories confirm our success in meeting that goal: the team’s practice is recognized by clients and peers as one of the strongest and most highly-respected in the Netherlands.
Clients praise the team for its solid understanding of their businesses and markets and its efficiency and pragmatism. They especially value the active involvement of senior team members in each matter and the exceptional accessibility of the whole team.
''The lawyers impress clients with 'their eye for detail, ability to think outside the box and practical way of handling difficult situations.' According to clients, 'the team is very impressive, pragmatic and very good in negotiations', and 'they are also very responsive'.''
