Testimonials

Hands-on approach to litigation with a genuine interest in the business dynamics underlying the dispute. Good partner availability and accessability. Small and nimble team.

The team has a broad and up to date knowledge of their disciplines and when they need additional expertise they can add it to the team in-house. They are able to assess the case in a quick and professional way in a short time. In comparison with other firms I think they are more concerned.

The partner I have worked with (Yuri Wehrmeijer) is very skilled and keen. We have discussed many items and together with my input he developed a great legal policy in order to win the case in court.

Yuri Wehrmeijer is not only an excellent litigator with in-depth knowlegde, but also a good person that always has the interests of his clients at the forefront of his mind.
