Anyone wanting to help the client move forward must organise themselves in a client-oriented manner. This is why Kneppelhout has divided its services into sectors. Working within these sectors are teams of specialists who study the world of the client in great depth.
Of course, we are primarily lawyers and legal specialists. Yet at the point where legislation and regulations end, that’s where our real work begins. Applying the law in the search for solutions that are optimally useful to our clients – that is our core activity. These solutions are to a high degree determined by the business context and often extend beyond the boundaries of the different fields of law.
Knowledge of your sector
Having empathy, asking questions, listening and then formulating the problem in understandable words. For us, this is the most normal thing in the world. Knowing what is going on in your sector and understanding it from the business perspective is what distinguishes ‘common’ lawyers from a business partner that goes the extra mile to help his clients. We are that business partner.
We combine our strengths. How? By working together in sector-based teams, combining specialisms, keeping abreast of the latest developments, discussing clients and the sector, and developing sector-specific activities. This is how we continually increase and accentuate the extra value we offer.
We focus on businesspeople in industry and (international) trade. Yet we also work for related sectors such as insurance companies, banks, semi-public sectors and local governments.
Our services are divided into the following sectors:
- Trade & Logistics
- Manufacturing Industry
- Offshore & Maritime Industry
- Food & Agribusiness
- FMCG & Retail
- Telecom & IT
- Real Estate
- Insurance Companies and Financial Institutions
- Government & Institutions
Kneppelhout also has an international section with a special focus on China and Vietnam.
