Innovative and focused

Since the inception of our office in 1850, we at De Clercq have always looked forward. Where are your opportunities? Where are ours? And how can we excel together? This requires vision but also focus. Therefore, we have specialized in a select number of legal areas and specific markets. Within these, we closely monitor developments, analyze their impact, and develop inventive legal solutions. We venture beyond the boundaries of the known, the predictable, and the everyday. Because it’s about you. And you want to stay ahead.

Client-oriented and cooperative

We aim for an equal partnership and collaboration with our clients. Long-term goals take precedence over short-term gains. We are willing to invest time and energy to better understand you and the context in which you operate. This approach is appreciated widely. Many clients, both in the Netherlands and beyond, find their way to De Clercq through recommendations.

Decisive and targeted

Do not expect us to use convoluted language or elusive jargon because De Clercq is a no-nonsense firm. We are straightforward, fight with open visibility, and speak plainly. We expect the same from you. To achieve your goal, we approach things pragmatically and creatively. As long as it serves your case, we are willing to deviate from the beaten path. This way, we remove obstacles and give you ample space.

Razor-sharp and critical

To achieve the best result for you, we set the bar high for ourselves. Good is not good enough; we aim to excel. That’s why we select our legal professionals based on their expertise, experience, and their ability to dive deep into a case. Because knowledge matters, experience carries weight, and every detail can be crucial. We dare to promise you that De Clercq has the best expertise to assist you or your legal department in a dispute.

Social and committed

De Clercq is deeply rooted in society. In addition to serving your interests, we are pleased to contribute to the common good. We support various institutions, associations, and initiatives with our knowledge, efforts, and financial resources, including ZZ Leiden, Stichting SPARK, Climbing the Right Tree, and the Ronald McDonald House Leiden. Furthermore, we welcome students for internships and informational sessions, and we are happy to share our knowledge through workshops and guest lectures.

Sustainable and responsible

To limit our ecological footprint, we implement LED lighting, use certified green energy, reduce travel through video conferencing, and encourage biking to the office. As a responsible employer, we also prioritize the work-life balance of our employees, foster team spirit with shared lunches, a weekly gathering, and office outings, contribute to the cost of gym memberships, and have a monthly chair masseuse visit. De Clercq operates sustainably and responsibly, considering both our employees and our (social) environment.
