Our rankings

We are regularly reviewed by clients and fellow lawyers both domestically and abroad. This keeps us on our toes and it is something we are proud of. In some cases, fellow lawyers even become clients.

Clients provide us with feedback and reviews directly or through one of the various authoritative organisations that perform such surveys and analyse the capabilities of law firms and their lawyers across the world. These organisations, such as Legal500, Who is Who Legal, Best Lawyers and Chambers, also base their assessments on feedback and reviews they receive from fellow lawyers in the Netherlands and elsewhere in the world.
