Van Benthem & Keulen is an independent and innovative full-service Dutch law firm with 80 legal professionals. A substantial part of our legal professionals have been trained at major Dutch and international law firms. We offer comprehensive legal advice in all key areas of business law, including Mergers & Acquisitions, Banking & Finance, ICT & Privacy, Intellectual Property, Corporate, EU & competitions, Public Procurement, Commercial Contracts, Dispute Resolution, Employment, Insolvency & Restructuring, Insurance & Liability, Real Estate & Construction, Administrative Law, Planning & Zoning, and a civil-law notary practice.
The firm has a permanent place in the top 20 of the largest law firms in the Netherlands and in both 2019 and 2021 was chosen by corporate movers and shakers as the best legal services provider (MT1000).
Van Benthem & Keulen focuses on medium and large (listed) enterprises both domestic and international. We differentiate ourselves from other law firms by making excellent service accessible through our unique service concept (van Dienst), including twice per year CPD courses in all major practice areas for inhouse lawyers, a free partner-operated help desk, and fixed-fee arrangements for each assignment (when requested by the client). Furthermore, our philosophy is to provide pragmatic solutions for our clients and real advice instead of “it could be either way advice”.
