Laga has developed extensive experience and expertise in helping Dutch companies operating in Belgium as well as Belgian companies contemplating opportunities in The Netherlands. We provide tailor made and integrated solutions to the variety of issues at stake.

The Laga Dutch Desk

The Dutch Desk is located at Laga’s Antwerp office under the leadership of Tim Baart, a Dutch national and law graduate from the University of Leuven who started his career as legal consultant and recognised tax consultant with Deloitte before joining Laga as a partner. The members of the Dutch Desk are all highly qualified and experienced professionals, fluent in the Dutch language, who combine a sound knowledge of the Dutch market and legislation with their expertise in the Belgian legal framework. They act as advisors to various Belgian and international companies in different sectors and provide legal services to a large number of Dutch companies active in Belgium.

Help is at hand

We provide our Dutch Desk clients with personalised assistance coordinated by a contact person in charge of the project. This contact person is, in turn, supported by a team of professionals specialised in the various legal and tax aspects involved.
