We offer our clients a single point of contact for both the typical finance aspects of those transactions, and on corporate reorganisations, intra-group transfers, the board’s fiduciary duties, insolvency-related advice, and stakeholder management. This integrated approach has proven a unique selling point in recent multinational finance, acquisition finance, and restructuring mandates.

By teaming up with the leading corporate and finance firms in Europe, the United States, and Asia, we offer seamless cross-border services to our clients. The breadth and depth of our legal capabilities in all relevant areas, including corporate, contract, security and insolvency law, and in regulatory matters, ensures that our finance and restructuring team is at the forefront of legal developments in the Netherlands.
