When running a business, you encounter legal issues on a daily basis, ranging from employment contracts to sales agreements.  And occasionally you run into more complicated issues, such as reorganisations, patents or tenders. Before this takes up too much of your time, you can trust upon the experts at Poelmann van den Broek: they will take care of your legal affairs while you do what you are good at and concentrate your energy and efforts on the efficient and successful management of your business. Our lawyers advise on any legal matter our clients encounter when conducting their business, and they do this from their respective fields of expertise, which include: business law, insolvency law, intellectual property and IT, procurement and competition law, and employment law and public service law.

Personal Approach

When you take your business to Poelmann van den Broek, you will have your own contact person who is well informed about your situation and keeps you up to date about new developments. If specialisation in a certain field is called for, your contact will involve a colleague to address that particular issue. By working in this way, we offer our clients the benefit of the expertise and experience of a large team of experts, and the comfort of a personal approach.
