Solutions that fit your practice

At Ekelmans & Meijer we know how complex legal proceedings can be. Preventing legal proceedings therefore is eminently preferable. Through astute negotiation for example. And by ensuring that from the very outset the terms agreed are defined clearly. A good contract is not simply a matter of copy and paste. A good contract is tailor-made to fit perfectly with the needs of the parties.
But there are situations in which attack is the best form of best defence. Our lawyers have years of experience in legal proceedings, and with that experience they can defend your interests to the fullest in a court of law. We set great store by developing an open and long-term relationship with our clients. By listening closely to our clients we seek to uncover the question behind the question. In conflict situations it is so easy to lose sight of the overall picture. We do not further complicate matters. We concentrate on restoring clarity and composure. At Ekelmans & Meijer we also aim to expand your knowledge. This is why we share our knowledge through lectures, seminars and newsletters.
The history of our firm goes back a long way: Ekelmans & Meijer was founded in the late nineteenth century. We now have over a hundred years of experience under our belt. Mergers and expansions have culminated in a current team of approximately forty lawyers and tax advisers. The Management Board comprises Frank Schaaf, Rob Kossen, Andrea van de Velde and Board Chairman Robert Kütemann. Our lawyers and tax advisers are supported by professional staff. They ensure a perfect organization of all aspects of our facility services, human resources and sponsoring.
