Boels Zanders Advocaten: leading by ambition

We are a full-service law firm in the south of the Netherlands, listed annually in the top 25 of the largest Dutch law firms. Every day, from offices in Maastricht, Venlo and Eindhoven, more than 70 lawyers and 50 support staff advance the legal interests of Dutch and foreign businesses, board members and their organisations in the SME and large enterprise sectors, governmental and semi-governmental agencies and non-profits.

Core values

Our services are aimed at guiding, advising and supporting our clients so that business processes can continue without disruption. We do this on the basis of our core values: efficient, committed and, of course, professional.


We believe that legal problems can be prevented from getting out of hand or even occurring. We believe in offering smart practical solutions that are not unduly complicated, time-consuming and without long-winded explanations.


We are personally and socially engaged. We cooperate, joining forces where necessary to ensure that our client’s business processes run smoothly. This requires broad/multidisciplinary and in-depth knowledge, but also listening attentively, knowing what is going on and involvement with our client and its various business processes. We are a trusted advisor/relationship manager and a super specialist.

Self-evidently professional 

Based on our full-service approach, we have broad, multidisciplinary and in-depth legal knowledge and experience. In practice, we recognise that complex issues require a different approach than simple issues.


We are closely involved in the world around us. Not only in the world in which we live today, but also with a view to the world of tomorrow. We use our knowledge, expertise and network to help civil society organisations and foundations develop responsibly. In other cases, we personally roll up our sleeves to make a contribution.

Our people are strongly engaged with society. Many of our lawyers are active in voluntary organisations, service clubs and foundation boards. And several of our employees are active in local politics. Our lawyers regularly share their legal knowledge (without asking a fee) via workshops, guest lectures and seminars. In addition, we are part of the urban committee of the Giving Back Foundation in Eindhoven and our employees are committed to the students/pupils as mentors.

Among others, we support the following organisations active in the fields of society, culture, nature and sport:
