About us

RWV Advocaten supplies high-quality legal services to businesses and private individuals.

Legal services

We have a 125-year reputation for reliability. We employ some 30 lawyers, which means that we’re large enough to accommodate specialists in just about every area of the law so that we can deal with any legal problem you might have. At the same time, we have a relatively small team of lawyers, who benefit from short lines of communication and take a close, personal interest in your case.

Our philosophy

We are pragmatic and creative. Our aim is to find a solution for the problem at hand. Whether it’s a question of mediating in a conflict, drafting a contract, producing a legal opinion or representing you in court, we are guided by your interests and wishes.


Our experienced mediators are specially trained to intervene in a wide variety of conflicts. Where appropriate, mediation can save you a great deal of time, money and energy.

Courses and workshops

Our lawyers give courses and workshops on legal matters, sometimes for other lawyers and in other cases for clients and other interested parties.


We like to keep our clients abreast of interesting news about recent developments in the law. This we do both on our website, which contains all the latest legal news, as well as useful tips and advice, and in the form of our monthly e-zine. You are also more than welcome to follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook. 


We are a member of Eurojuris, Europe’s leading network of independent law firms, with members over 40 countries, a growing number of whom also have offices outside Europe. The network gives us direct access to foreign law firms with their wealth of local knowledge – precisely what is required in order to represent your interests abroad.

RWV Advocaten is a partnership encompassing various professional corporations and is registered with the Leiden Chamber of Commerce under number 27340982.
