Utrecht

Netherlands

Our Dutch offices are located in Utrecht and Amsterdam. At CMS Netherlands, 160 lawyers, notaries and tax advisers form a full service practice. Our clients are medium and large enterprises and multinationals.

We advise them on legal and tax issues and have extensive knowledge of all big industries. We gladly facilitate our clients in following their ambitions. We always make sure that we are up-to-date on market changes and legislative changes and will provide you with clear, concrete advices.

CMS has a long tradition as a legal services provider in the Dutch market. Our Dutch office was founded in 1900. In 1999 we brought our international aspirations into practice when we entered into an alliance with four other renowned European firms: CMS was born. Currently CMS has 74 offices in 42 countries and is one of the leading law firms in the world. We know everything about the Dutch business climate and are actively involved in several networks for social responsibility.

Laws and regulations are becoming more and more complex. Companies have limited certainties on future legal developments and legal issues are complicated and comprehensive. Advising on these legal issues is CMS’ core business. But CMS aims to facilitate and work together with its clients in a broader sense. An example is that we maintain close relations with scientists and research institutions. Jointly we study complex issues that our clients have to deal with. Next to that, we stimulate our clients to anticipate long term developments, in order to be future proof.

We share our knowledge and experience without any obligations on our website. If you are interested in the services that we offer, please visit our Online Services Platform.
