Mission and vision

Our strength lies in making connections. We bring different specialists together. This is what makes our approach and advice so solid. The more connections we can make, the more intricate we can make our structure, providing us with a solid base for our advice.


OUR VISION
Our world is becoming increasingly complex. We see a world where there is no one truth. Where things are not black or white, right or wrong. Certainties do not necessarily exist. This is the world in which you operate and in which we play an active role.

OUR MISSION
We strive to be a firm that offers you guidance and direction in this complex world by providing advice, mediation, negotiations and if necessary, litigation on the issues that really matter. And we unite all these various elements to achieve that.

OUR CLIENTS
We advise leading Dutch and international companies, financial service providers, semi-public organisations and government agencies. We also act as State Advocate for the Dutch Ministry of Finance. We aim for lasting relationships with our clients and are proud to have been working with most of them for many years.


The charm of a large firm

Van Doorne is large enough to house all types of specialists, yet small enough to personally know all of our colleagues. We work with you and with one another on a personal level.
