DVDW Advocaten

Clear drafting, clear advocacy

Solid and clear agreements benefit business. Recording such these agreements requires a combination of knowledge about the law combined with an entrepreneurial spirit. Our approach is to protect our clients from future conflicts by drafting clear contractual agreements and by advising clients adequately about the risks involved. We suggest options and provide solutions.

In essence, our solutions are about clear and well-balanced regulations that provide for risks while taking account of the customs and practices of the industry in question. We work with a regular team of lawyers who are not only able to provide you with advice regarding a contract, but who also have extensive experience in litigation. These are specialists who can provide you with sound advice on how to draft your contracts given that, on the basis of their experience, they are better placed than most to recognise and prevent potential conflicts. In this way we realise added value for you.

The lawyers at DVDW are focused on finding solutions. However, if a conflict escalates, we are there to represent you. Irrespective of whether this involves going to court or alternative forms of dispute resolution such as arbitration, binding opinions and mediation.
