Businesses naturally tend to focus on the commercial and technical aspects of what they do. Sometimes this means that the legal aspects of their business activities are neglected, especially since these legal aspects are rather complex in many cases. But entrepreneurs can potentially save themselves a lot of time, work and expense by addressing legal questions at an earlier stage. A meeting with Schoenmaker Bedrijfsjuridisch Advies & Mediation can give you exactly the kind of expert insight that you need. And the service that we provide is fast too: often we can arrange a meeting for the very same day that you contact us.
Many of our clients come to the legal specialists at Schoenmaker Bedrijfsjuridisch Advies & Mediation to arrange all the legal matters associated with their business, while others call on our services as and when required. And of course, many variations to these two methods are also possible.
Our legal expertise covers most fields that you may come into contact with as a businessperson: labour law, tenancy law, contracts such as sales agreements and agency agreements, business law, IT law, intellectual property, spatial planning and contracts (both national and international). Where necessary, we also work with accountants, lawyers and tax consultants.
We are able to call on considerable linguistic talents, specifically those of Ben Heijmeijer, who has mastered English, German, French and Russian. This has enabled us to build up an international portfolio of clients and extensive contacts with law firms abroad.
Ben Schoenmaker, meanwhile, regularly acts as a certified mediator for the Dutch Federation of Mediators (MfN), helping to resolve disputes between businesses or between entrepreneurs and their personnel, family disputes (relating to a divorce or an inheritance, for example), or disputes between neighbours.
Schoenmaker Bedrijfsjuridisch Advies & Mediation takes a proactive approach to educating its existing clients, writing a blog that they update regularly with interesting and useful legal facts.
