We are a boutique law firm founded in 2013 and focusing on corporate & (alternative) finance from a transaction, advisory and litigation perspective. Both the founding partners, Jan Paul Franx and Gijs Gerretsen, and Frits Oldenburg who joined subsequently as of counsel , were for many years partners at NautaDutilh and each of them have more than 25 years experience as lawyers and civil law notary respectively. Anne Hakvoort, who joined as a partner in 2015, also spent the first six years of her legal career at NautaDutilh. Before joining FG Lawyers, Anne broadened her expertise at international firm Eversheds. Besides working in Amsterdam, each of us have also practiced or studied law abroad (London and New York). We have a proven track-record acting as advisors for a wide variety of enterprises in a number of industry sectors, ranging from small businesses to multinationals and from family owned companies to financial institutions. We advise - both national and cross border - on M&A, private equity, joint ventures, capital markets transactions and related securities law issues, corporate governance, bank financing, alternative financing such as crowdfunding and credit unions, debt sale and financial and regulatory issues affecting your business. We can assist you in your transactions, advise on the best legal structure to suit your strategy and vision, and can support you when you or your business face litigation. We often represent our clients in court proceedings or arbitration proceedings. Where necessary we work closely with boutique firms focusing on other areas of law.Something looks off?
