Our clients

We work for a wide range of clients, both nationally and internationally.
We work for a broad spectrum of clients, ranging from corporate clients, strategic parties to financial investors in private equity, but also serve local councils and supervisory authorities. Moreover, our Corporate/M&A team is active in various regulated markets, including energy, financial institutions and healthcare. We have a keen understanding on how supervisory authorities operate and know how to use this knowledge in corporate M&A matters. Our team also assisted in various transactions within the automotive, retail, industrial and food sectors. Our leading position in the public domain explains our involvement in most of the privatisations and private/public co-operations.
