A different view
First Legal offers you a permanent team of legal specialists, that can expand with additional experts if needed.
By doing this we can provide you with all the expertise of a full-service law firm, but not the associated high costs.
Just choose a fixed hourly rate or one of our alternative fee structures. Whatever suits you best. The result? High-quality legal services at a competitive rate.
Who we are
First Legal was founded on the conviction that the legal profession needs innovation. It must change and, above all, improve. That is why we have constructed our business model around the customer: instead of focussing on what we can offer, we focus on you and your question.
Customer first: in concept and execution.
We think in terms of possibilities and solutions. We always view situations from your perspective. With a small team of attorneys and a flexible outer layer of specialists, we can keep our rates low.
Quality is key.
First Legal only works with experienced legal specialists. Attorneys who are used to working at the highest level and who can empathise with challenges faced by entrepreneurs. To guarantee these qualities, First Legal has built up a network of specialists. You always have the best attorney for your specific situation.

"The companies I have worked for and consulted in the recent years know my added value. I communicate clearly, without many if's and but's, and always deliver on my promises. As a attorney I specialise in Corporate Law and Merger & Acquisitions. Furthermore, I have succesfully completed the Grotius Corporate Transactions postgraduate course. With more than 20 years of practical experience I know the tricks of the trade. As an entrepreneur, I like to think in terms of opportunities and possibilities, for myself and especially for my clients. I am an energetic person, strategically sound and solution-oriented.”
