‘This is one of the biggest liability and insurance teams in the market. They combine great knowledge with a pragmatic approach. A very flexible team that is not focused on the billable hours, but on the result for their clients. Of course we also sometimes work with other law firms, but at the end of the day this does not lead to the same level of service/knowledge. This team also believes in knowledge sharing and also organises many great events each year to share their experiences for free with all parties interested.‘

The Legal 500 EMEA, 2020

‘The individuals I work with think as though they are entrepreneurs/employers so apart from being specialists in law they are capable of thinking on the same lines as clients on various levels, national and international. If necessary they can connect very quickly with other colleagues of other sections. Furthermore they develop new judicial services for our clients with us.‘
