July/August 2016

The ILN is proud to announce our latest firm of the month, PlasBossinade advocaten notarissen – Groningen, the Netherlands!

PlasBossinade is a full service law firm and one of the leading legal service providers in the Northern Netherlands. The firm looks after legal matters for a number of large scale and smaller enterprises, public authorities, institutions and private persons in the Northern Netherlands and beyond.

The firm consists of over 30 lawyers, among which are also tax lawyers. PlasBossinade has 11 partners, each of whom has vast experience in his or her field of specialty. PlasBossinade also provides services by civil law notaries (in a separate legal entity, PlasBossinade Notarissen N.V.).

All in all, the interests of the clients of PlasBossinade are taken care of, not only from a legal perspective, but also from a tax and commercial perspective. At PlasBossinade, quality and thoroughness is combined with a practical and pragmatic approach. PlasBossinade provides clear, strategic and creative advice with a realistic view of the possibilities, risks and costs. The slogan of PlasBossinade is: THE LINK BETWEEN LAW AND REALITY.

The services of PlasBossinade reach beyond the borders of The Netherlands. Many of their clients also do business abroad or are otherwise dealing with jurisdictions of other countries.

Although PlasBossinade has joined the ILN recently, they have been able to assist various ILN colleagues representing multinational companies, mainly in relation to their affiliates in the Netherlands (restructuring, acquisition, or divestiture), employment matters and tax matters. An example of a successful referral is that PlasBossinade (Stefan Mak) was involved at the request of Danish member DAHL (Björn Wittrup), Copenhagen office, in rendering its opinion on factoring activities to be undertaken in The Netherlands by a Danish bank. The concept (and risk) of double assignment of accounts receivable proved to be a complex subject for which various systems of law provide different solutions. This is what makes the cooperation with members of ILN rewarding. In its turn, PlasBossinade has experienced very satisfying assistance from ILN colleagues – for example, Fladgate (Charles Wander and colleagues) in the UK and EXPLegal (Antonello Corrado) in Italy regarding some complex matters for Dutch clients abroad.
