Our Vision

De Roos Advocatuur is the no-nonsense legal partner for innovators. We are ambitious; we want to deliver the best possible service to our clients. Therefore, we are always looking for professionals who would like to contribute to this mission.

At De Roos Advocatuur we work for pioneers and disruptors; organisations with a passion for their mission, service or product. The needs of our clients vary. We litigate on business models which do not (yet) fit within the rules. We advise on design and IP protection. Or we help tech startups to make a deal with an investor. With all the cases we do, we want to make an impact.

Our Team

We are located at the ‘Noord As’, where we are surrounded by creative industries. Every day is casual Friday here, because we think it is important what you say and not what you wear.

We embrace technology and we work paperless. In our mission we are looking for a new, modern way of the legal profession. Ambitious? Yes. Money driven? No. And above all: sustainable. We want to contribute to sustainability with our Pro Bono program.

The only major energy consumer in the office is our electric massage chair. Should we say something about our cinema? Or about our personal boxing and fitness trainers?

Do you feel attracted to these clients, this team and these activities?

And are you a pioneer in the legal profession? Then we should meet. So we can explain it all over coffee.

Have a coffee with us
