We are a member of the Dutch Bar Association (NOvA). NOvA has established rules, with which all lawyers (firms) in the Netherlands must comply. Naturally, we stick to those rules. And we wholeheartedly support these rules, which are a quality standard for our profession and, through disciplinary law, ensure a natural selection into suitable and unsuitable lawyers (firms).

We go even further than the NOvA regulations. We have drawn up our own office manual, which includes all internal and external procedures relevant to us. This is not just about legal proceedings, but about the methods in our firm, which we have standardized and automated as much as possible. For example, quality assurance, deadline monitoring, dossier management, confidentiality, signalling incoming messages, dealing with clients, legal quality in cases, preventing errors.

In this way we offer our clients every possible guarantee of high and consistent quality services.
