You are most likely an entrepreneur or perhaps a business person in a small or medium-sized firm with major responsibilities in the region.
You may be in-house legal counsel to such a firm or, possibly, a boutique law-firm professional. You probably will be seeking additional advice in a matter involving Dutch, International, or East European law.
On the other hand, large, transnational corporations will usually have their own in-house counsel; often already enjoying close relationships with law firms which may have offices in several jurisdictions. When you fit such a corporate or law-firm profile and may wish a second opinion on a specific matter, we would also be pleased to work with you.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, associated with a large business or law firm, you will be searching for a workable solution for your business-law needs in the region. They could be to:
- start-up or liquidate a (client’s) business unit;
- obtain advice on tax law or other elements in structuring a one-off deal or a recurring transaction;
- involve an outside legal professional in your (client’s) negotiations with businesspeople or government officials to ensure the completeness of your advice and representation;
- secure advice or representation in resolving disputes in state (commercial) court or international commercial arbitration;
- enforce a court decision or arbitration award or obtain security for interim proceedings.
You will want international business-law advice and representation to be focused on your (client’s) current business and future goals. It should aid you in achieving a fair result in the case at hand (or in related matters). You will expect to be advised and represented by people with meaningful experience in international business law; for them to provide you with their services at a fair price. The professionals in the Timmermans & Simons International Business Lawyers team have these skills and experience. Our services are fairly priced.
