Testimonials

‘Easy to reach, highly creative teams with utmost experience and dedication.’

‘Extremely accessible team with a lot of senior (partner) attention. This helps move things forward swiftly.’

‘Rutger Jansen is our go-to guy for our larger transactions. He is extremely pragmatic and really understands his client’s wishes. As such he goes out and gets you the best result at minimal interaction with ourselves. I sometimes say, that Rutger can do 95% of a deal without us, all we need to do is discuss and agree some final commercial terms and sign the paperwork.’

‘We met BJTK as advisor during an acquisition. The moment BJTK was hired by the target the complete dynamics changed. After this acquisition we asked BJTK to work on our side of the table. The team gives very valuable advice. During the acquisitions we did with BJTK they played a pivotal role during the negotiations. Without their balanced advice we would not have realized the transaction in a good manner.’

‘We worked mainly with Quirijn Biesheuvel. He has a strong presence in the room. Blowing other lawyers away with: content knowledge, verbal skills and non verbal.’

Testimonials

‘They have a very senior team and have extensive experience in PE/VC transactions, also on the commercial side of it. They offer more than just legal advice – they fully coordinate and manage transactions which give the company/investors more time to focus on other things. Furthermore, speed is a key word in their approach.’

Always keep the end result and the requirements of the customer at the core of what they do, efficiently and pragmatically getting to an optimal outcome.’
