What others say about Judith

IFLR1000: “Top quality work. They deliver under immense time pressure and the partner and her team members are super responsive. They also take a commercial approach when needed in order to move matters along. It is a great pleasure to work with them and Judith Raijmakers deserves a special mention, as she is a great lawyer and a pleasure to work with. She can be counted on in the most difficult situations. We were very happy with Loyens & Loeff's performance. They are highly responsive and knowledgeable. I would specifically stress the extremely smooth interaction between their tax and banking teams, which really made our life easier." (2020)
