About us

Kneppelhout & Korthals was established in 1979 by Jan Kneppelhout and Benk Korthals (Minister of Justice in the Kok II cabinet and Minister of Defense in the Balkenende I cabinet). We are a medium-sized full service law firm that focuses on entrepreneurs in various sectors: trade, industry, maritime, transport, export, construction, real estate and telecom. Entrepreneurs which create, build brands, conduct trade, provide financing and trade internationally. Entrepreneurs which take risks, but remain well grounded.

Our lawyers are experts in assisting entrepreneurs perfectly but our client approach and service is what really sets us apart, makes us different and extraordinary. We assess matters with a strong client focus and client interest likewise in mind. In our perception client experience and client satisfaction are the Holy Grail for a long-term cooperation.

It is our mission and ongoing task to assist the client successfully. We want to help our clients to successfully engage in business by being a business partner which proactively and pragmatically advises, which takes away legal barriers and which always goes the extra mile.
