As the fifth largest Eurozone economy, a substantial number of international companies are headquartered in, or structured through the Netherlands. Its ‘open trade mentality’, favourable tax regime and strategic European location make this country attractive to many foreign investors, especially from the UK and US. As a result, the Netherlands is an interesting market to us and our clients.

We assist law firms, both Dutch and international, on partner and associate level hiring, establishment of best friends’ relationships, setting up Dutch offices and due diligence projects. We assist in-house clients in their hiring activities at all levels of seniority.

Our global reach not only gives us access to the best international and national candidates, but also enables us to provide seamless cross-border services and to convey a truly global vision to our international clients.

In addition, as the Dutch private practice market is rather compact, disclosure of names or strategic (hiring) plans to the market is generally not desired. Therefore, a London based search firm like FRS, which prides itself on integrity and confidentiality in all its offerings, is generally regarded a safe solution.

Our Dutch team consists of former Dutch and UK qualified attorneys, fluent in Dutch and English.
