International Work:
The firm is proud of its Dutch client base, which comprises large and medium-sized companies, banks, insurance companies, (quasi) governmental institutions and Dutch subsidiaries of foreign enterprises. Van Doorne is also well known for its international practice, serving a large number of international clients, particularly from the UK and the US. The majority of transactional work carried out by the banking and corporate team (including tax) is cross border. The independent status of Van Doorne provides it with a great opportunity to work with the best-equipped law firms in other countries. For that purpose, over the past decades, the firm has maintained close working relationships with leading law firms in all important jurisdictions. Van Doorne strongly believes in the advantage to be able to instruct, and receive instructions from, top firms in other jurisdictions for international transactions.

Van Doorne works for prominent Dutch and international companies, business and financial service providers, semi-public organisations and government institutions. Van Doorne aims to maintain long-term relationships with its clients. The firm has been working with most of them for years now, and that is something it is very proud of.
