DVDW Advocaten

Property and Government

Everybody comes into contact with the government in their everyday business and personal lives, whether in the form of municipal or provincial authorities, water boards, central government or autonomous government agencies.

The main task of these government institutions is to implement legislation and regulations by taking certain decisions. Those decisions can be challenged by interested parties.

DVDW Advocaten can provide you with advice in this area and if necessary assist you with litigation and other proceedings against government bodies in any area of administrative law, including environmental law.

Furthermore, government institutions often engage in private law transactions, giving rise to legal questions in relation to contracts, property rights and land acquisition, not to mention liability issues.

DVDW Advocaten can also help if you work for the government and require assistance or advice in relation to administrative law or civil law matters.
