Our Commitment

We offer high-quality professional services with a personal ‘hands-on’ and pro-active approach. The firm cherishes its international practice, focusing on companies with global operations mostly headquartered in North America, Europe or the Far East, with business activities in the Netherlands or Europe.

We advise companies in the entire ‘spectrum’ of corporate law: legal advice (corporate, commercial and litigation practice), tax advice and notarial services. WLP-Law is one of the few, if not the only, boutique law firm in the Netherlands that combines these three disciplines in one and the same firm.

Our team advises our clients on matters of Dutch law, national and cross-border mergers and acquisitions (and related financings), private equity investments and management buy-outs or buy-ins (and similar transactions), joint ventures, company formations, tax planning, as well as on commercial contracts, or on litigation – or the prevention therof – with respect to directors’ liability shareholder/stakeholder and company disputes.

Always personal contact

Our Team

We have a lean dedicated legal team, ready to support you with your corporate or commercial issues. We combine many years of experience in corporate and commercial (tax) law. We believe in building a long-term and personal relationship with all our clients. Our statutory name contains the words “Legal Partners” for a reason: we stand by you, and provide tailor-made solutions that meet your needs. In short: we would like to get to know you and appreciate your business.

Large international network

WLP -Law has an extensive and detailed (inter)national informal “best-friends” network of law and tax firms. From time to time, if we do not have the particular expertise, such as employment matters or I.P. related matters, we sub-contract other boutique firms.  Often we remain lead counsel in such instances. WLP-Law has been affiliated with and active in the IBA (International Bar Association) for many years.


Never a dull moment! Not one day is the same at WLP-Law. How’s that?
