Our specialists have broad experience and knowledge of European and Dutch competition law and in the area of regulated markets. We give advice on sector-specific regulations for the energy and water sector (such as gas, electricity, heat, mining and renewable energy), competition law and procurement law. We also act on behalf of parties in administrative and civil disputes.

We also advise water boards, drinking water companies and water treatment companies, as well as other government bodies and companies on all aspects of water management. For example, we assist with questions and legal proceedings on dike strengthening, land acquisition and management, the designation of water storage areas, groundwater and flooding damage, drinking water supply and groundwater extraction.

‘Hands-on, great in depth expertise and true deal makers. High level of integrity, very efficient and effective in feedback.‘
