DVDW Advocaten

The crucial importance of knowledge of your sector

The shipping and offshore sector has its own particular customs, and the interests and amounts at stake can be substantial. Knowledge of those customs and of the essential areas of law is a prerequisite for being able to offer clients in this sector the service that they need.



DVDW Advocaten has spent many years advising major shipping and offshore companies, enabling us to provide clients with advice quickly, without first needing to ask them to explain the customs of their sector to us. Besides knowledge and expertise in this field, DVDW Advocaten also has a network of major businesses and foreign law firms in this area to rely on when particular international issues arise.
