Corporate and Commercial
Business relationships that cross borders have different requirements than those which are purely domestic. Strong, precise and clear contract drafting can help companies avoid the pitfalls of doing business outside their home countries. More importantly, experience with the practical issues arising in various countries and legal systems can be critical to avoiding problems. The lawyers of Conway & Partners regularly help guide their clients throughout the process of structuring and performing a transaction. From the opening of negotiations, all the way through execution of the contract, our lawyers have the necessary expertise to help you do your deal successfully.
International contracting today is done to a large extent in the English language. Yet many times the final contracts are written by individuals who are not native speakers and who are more often than not advised by lawyers whose mother tongue is not English. Conway & Partners brings an added advantage to this process as it has native English speaking lawyers who can help structure the documentation and formulate in precise language the provisions you need and desire for the business relationship.
Contracting under a different law?
When we say we are “Advocaten & Attorneys”, it’s not just some marketing gimmick or catchy way of saying that Conway & Partners is simply a law firm. In fact, the Conway & Partners lawyers combine American or “common” law trained attorneys working together with Dutch or “civil” law trained advocaten. Our teams of specialists have the knowledge of different legal systems and the practical experience derived from transactions in dozens of countries to recognize what rules apply to cross-border agreements. We can help explain foreign legal concepts to parties not used to doing business in the Netherlands, or vice-versa. We can also help you in drafting your contracts by ensuring that your expectations are not derailed because of unexpected foreign legal rules.
