An independent stance
In the late 1990s the rise of the Anglo-Saxon firms in Europe seemed all but inexorable. But as larger firms struggle against a downturn in both their central and secondary markets, smaller, independently managed firms are finding themselves in an increasingly enviable position, says Michiel Wesseling
In the past five years the legal landscape has changed dramatically in all European jurisdictions and the Dutch legal market has been no exception. It remains to be seen how that market will continue to develop, but for the moment at least, the large Dutch firms that have remained independent seem to have been remarkably successful in maintaining their autonomy without sacrificing economic strength.
