Corporate Law


Your corporate affairs in order

Meijer Notarissen advises and guides both Dutch and foreign clients in the field of business. Running a business can be done in many ways. Alone or with a business partner, with or without staff, as a sole trader, private limited company or public limited company. Which shape is best for you? This choice and the accompanying guidance require customization. Our (candidate) civil-law notaries and notarial staff think along with you in a professional and personal way and make the right legal translation for you. From simple foundations to complex private limited company structures.
