Van Till was founded in 1996 by four lawyers who previously worked at large Dutch law firms. Their mission was to provide high-level legal services within a personal and friendly atmosphere. Those principles are still of paramount importance to us.

Van Till was founded in 1996 by four lawyers who previously worked at large Dutch law firms. Their mission was to provide high-level legal services within a personal and friendly atmosphere. Those principles are still of paramount importance to us.

Our team consists of experienced partners who – like the founders – made the transition from large international firms, together with experienced lawyers and young talent. Our firm has grown in size since its founding, but we still consciously and consistently opt for the human dimension within our team in order to ensure that we adhere to the principles of our firm.

Our clients include national and international companies, as well as investment funds, government- and other public institutions.

Our expertise in commercial contracts, corporate M&A, private equity, employment law, insolvency, litigation, real estate, administrative and procurement law, makes us a one stop shop, also for issues in day-to-day business operations.

We have been working with many of our clients for a long time. Various clients also find their way to our firm based on recommendations from the Netherlands and abroad.

Approach

Good service begins with a clear identification of the goal that the client has in mind. We tailor our strategy to that goal. Because of our experience we are expert »chess players»: when determining the strategy, we look as many steps ahead as possible and adjust where necessary. Naturally, we involve the client in every step. Transparency is key.

At Van Till, we prefer pragmatic advocacy, of course without losing track of legal theory. This ensures that we manage cases quickly and efficiently within a pleasant atmosphere.

Our clients appreciate that our partners are hands-on involved. As a starting point, we work with compact teams that can be flexibly expanded as soon as the case requires it.

Client satisfaction is not only based on the substantive performance, but also on the costs charged for it. We apply reasonable rates with a clear fee structure.
