Full-service approach

For over a century now, we have combined a full-service approach and a broad sector focus to consider any question from a range of angles and provide quality solutions - anywhere in the world. Literally. From our own offices, of course, and also through our various country teams and our extensive, worldwide Friends Network.

Practising Dutch, Belgian and Luxembourg law, we have the size, the expertise and the experience to assist in national and international M&As, solve complex public-sector issues, conduct minor and major litigation, and advise on substantial projects such as the energy transition and issues concerning privacy and data security.


Value pricing

Our goal is to give our clients the best advice possible in a contemporary, efficient manner. That is why we offer various fee arrangements. Any fee arrangement is negotiable, from fixed hourly rates to fee caps, from contingency fees to success fees. Feel free to discuss this with your AKD contact and we are certain to find the arrangement most suited to your situation

Doing business, winning cases

We help you do both. With committed, ambitious professionals who have no use for legalese but speak your language. We turn complex into coherent and give it to you straight. Rather than leaving your doubts linger, we resolve them. Exactly as you would expect from an adviser.
