Florent is not your average corporate boutique law firm.
Sure, the firm offers top-notch legal advice in a personal setting at competitive rates. But where other boutiques limit themselves to just M&A, just litigation, just finance or just insolvency law, Florent offers all those services. Because the firm believes you should be able to count on your lawyer. To help you win your must-win battles in the next phase of your company’s life cycle, whatever that phase may be. And to be your trusted adviser rather than a one-trick pony.
So that’s Florent’s promise. It will stay on board. From start-up to investment round, from acquisition to litigation and from financial distress to exit. Every step of the way. And on to your next corporate life event.
The firm was launched in 2017 by partners from BLIX and Höcker Advocaten: Yvette Borrius, Pieter van den Brink, Matthijs Brons, Hanneke De Coninck-Smolders, Chris Jager, Kees van de Meent, and Jurjen Tuinman, and their teams. Rob van den Sigtenhorst recently joined the firm as Florent’s eighth partner from De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek.
Based in Amsterdam, the firm is often involved in international/cross-border matters.
