How we can help

We are known for our prompt, practical approach, and strategic advice. Employment law and taxes are dynamic areas, and domestic and European legislation and case law are complex and constantly changing. We help you to implement legislation and offer pragmatic solutions to (large) national and international employment law and tax challenges. We understand the challenges that you as an employer encounter and like to help you turn these into opportunities.

International companies can rely on our coordinated international services. Across our home market and international offices, our team of tax and employment lawyers specialise in Dutch, Belgian, Luxembourg and Swiss law. Different disciplines and jurisdictions also come together in our sector, topic, and regional teams. When needed, we work closely with a network of international firms so that we can swiftly call on experts in jurisdictions outside of our home markets.
