In your opinion, what is the future for the legal profession?

Although law firms are confronted with competition from all sides (legal departments of insurance companies, in house lawyers, legal freelancers, legal departments of accountancy firms etc.), a lawyer in The Netherlands still has a privileged position. We have the process monopoly in the Dutch courts to represent justice seekers. Given the information that is available on the internet, we do expect that at the end of the day only the law firms that heavily invest in knowledge (systems) and permanent education of their lawyers, will survive in the next decades.
What is your growth strategy?

We are aiming to invite senior lawyers who are providing added value to join our company. The search for compatible future partners is proving to be difficult. At the same time we are offering postdoctoral courses to our talented associates in order to create more leverage and enable them to apply for a shareholders' position.
Where do you see your firm 5 years from now?

Our firm will surely be located in its present spot, right near Schiphol Airport and very close to the financial and legal center of Amsterdam, the so called Zuid-as (within 1 mile). The Amsterdam court is at the same distance and our international clients are always presently surprised by the short distance from Schiphol Airport, which is only 10 minutes by taxi or train. From a growth perspective we hope and expect to realize a growth between 25 and 40 % fte over the next three to five years.
What is your biggest challenge?

Our biggest challenge is to maintain our unique mixture of triple A clients and the pleasant working atmosphere.
What percentage of your work is international?

Although the international work is more fluctuating, the average amount is 5 to 10 % of our total practice.
