Germany is the largest and most important trading partner of the Netherlands, which is why Van Benthem & Keulen has an active German Desk that advises and assists clients from Germany and the Netherlands in doing cross-border business. We assist German companies that seek to gain a foothold in the Netherlands or, for example, that have to negotiate with a Dutch supplier. We also help Dutch businesses that seek to conclude contracts with German companies.
There is more to doing business with German companies than just having the appropriate legal knowledge and speaking the language. Our experience is that knowledge of cultural differences also plays an important role. Our experts have been trained in both the Netherlands and Germany, are fully bilingual and are familiar with the culture, so they can provide optimal assistance.
