Business law

Business law

Do you have a conflict with a fellow shareholder? Would you like advice on starting a business? Would you like to take over a company? Are you thinking about your (fiscally advantageous) business succession? We can help you!

Entrepreneurship is inherently about taking risks. As an entrepreneur there are a number of risks you are very well aware of, but there are also risks outside your sphere of knowledge. It’s therefore wise to make use of our services when setting up the legal structure of your company, concluding contracts and collaborating with other entrepreneurs. We are involved in identifying and mitigating risks that you as a business owner may not know about, so you can focus on your core business: entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurs as well as innovative non-profit organisations and research institutions want to innovate and explore new opportunities. You will increasingly deal with new (inter)national regulations and codes of conduct internally as well as externally. It is important that you meet the requirements of the regulations without the functioning of your organisation being affected. Expert legal assistance is essential. We have knowledge of these regulations and codes of conduct and we can therefore advise on a good corporate governance structure.

Full service
Business law has much in common with other areas of law such as Labour Law, Administrative Law and Bankruptcy Law.  Since we are a full-service firm, we are highly knowledgeable in all legal areas. If your case covers multiple legal areas, we bring knowledge from different legal areas together. In addition, there is a fully integrated collaboration between advocacy and notaryship.

. Among other things, we can provide advice on and guidance with:

  • developing and structuring private and public corporations, foundations, associations and cooperatives;
  • the formation and structuring of partnerships without incorporation, such as a partnership, general partnership or limited partnership;
  • financial, fiscal or legal reorganisation of companies;
  • entering into joint ventures and shareholder agreements;
  • the financing of an enterprise and the provision of security;
  • entering into mergers and acquisitions.
