TESTIMONIAL: I am impressed by the high-quality standard of all people at FIZ. During my work as a litigator, I am in contact with many other law firms. FIZ stands out because of a combination of great quality and a highly responsive spirit. I would not hesitate to recommend Jurian or FIZ in general to any party that is in need of a top-notch financial law firm.

TESTIMONIAL: FIZ understands the industry and has in-depth knowledge of all matters involved. The high quality of the specialists in combination with their favourable terms make them unique.

TESTIMONIAL: The short lines of communication and proactive attitude are especially appreciated.

TESTIMONIAL: Both Jurian and Youri are highly intelligent professionals who very quickly understand their client’s actual needs in a particular transaction. This enables them to step in at any time and act effectively.

TESTIMONIAL: I have experienced our collaboration with FIZ as very solid. Jurian Snijders is a lawyer with extensive in-depth knowledge of finance and insolvency law.

TESTIMONIAL: Compared to other law firms I have worked with during my career, FIZ is absolutely one of the best. They have an extensive level of knowledge, are efficient and able to react fast due to their limited size. Also, when taking into account the cost, FIZ is offering an exceptional good balance between price and quality.
