You are most likely in a small or medium-sized firm – an entrepreneur, a business person with major responsibilities in the region; or you may be an in-house legal counsel for your firm or a lawyer with her own firm looking for additional advice and counsel in a matter involving Dutch, International or East European law. Large, transnational corporations will usually have their own in-house counsel serving the needs of their employer or maintain close relationships with large law firms with offices in a multitude of jurisdictions. If you fit this profile but may wish a ‘second opinion’ on a specific matter, we certainly can be of assistance to you.
You will be searching for a workable solution for your business in the region. It may be start-up or the liquidation of a business unit. It is likely to include the need for tax advice and other elements in structuring a one-off deal or recurring transactions; it may include involvement in your negotiations with businesspeople or government officials to ensure the completeness of your advice and representation. You may want advice and/or representation in dispute resolution: either in a state court or international commercial arbitration proceedings. Your needs may also encompass enforcement of a court judgment or arbitration award or security for interim proceedings.
You will want, in short, international business law advice and representation focused on your business and your goals so as to achieve a fair result for you in a specific case and in related matters. You will expect people with longstanding experience in international business law to provide these services to you at a fair price.
