Halsten Employment Law Practice Group

The offices of Halsten advocaten and Halsten Legal Department work for a large number of clients in the Netherlands. Clients who we consider our business partners. Partners for whom we always do our utmost. Always the best solution to fit your business needs. That's our motto. We take our client’s policy and objectives as a starting point without ever losing sight of our independent position and professional duties. We always ask ourselves: is there a better option? Can we work in a more flexible and efficient manner to lower the costs? If so, we discuss this immediately and change tack. We share all our legal and other knowledge and insights with our clients. After all, real partnerships benefit from long-term visions and recognizing broader contexts.
