Janou Briaire


‘The perfect combination of individual knowledge, team strength and yet a strong personal commitment. In this combination they rise above others.’

‘I see the strength in them acting as a team and the team balance. It is striking that they all genuinely empathise with the case and their client. Their curiosity improves the knowledge of their customer, so that they always look the same way as their customer.’

‘Janou Briaire is the partner I work with most of the time. She is knowledgeable, easy to contact and always on the search for a solution. She uses her network to connect me to others and in meetings she combines her professionalism with her charm and humour.’

‘The team helped me enormously when selling the shares in my company to a competitor: sharp thinkers, forward thinking, critical, motivated, hard on the ball, going up against a top legal firm and getting things done. Result-oriented.’

‘Jeroen Oehlen was my personal contact. Of course, he has an entire team behind him, but it actually felt as he alone was my personal lawyer. I found that tremendously reassuring. He was on my case, knew all ins and outs, took the lead, gave me all the options with an explanation and still enquires now and then how things are going.’

‘Thorough professional knowledge, a good understanding of the company and its goals, good quality in-house service.’

‘Accessible, always available, demonstrable willingness to provide the best possible service.’

‘Boels Zanders has specialists for every legal aspect. Their size is big enough for these specialists, but the company is small enough to provide a high level of service and advise fitting to our company.’
