Team of lawyers specializing in the education sector, who work closely and effectively with each other and the client to create customized solutions.

Developments in education sector

Our National Government imposes increasingly higher performance standards on educational institutions, but at the same time slowly turn off the money tap. For that reason these institutions must be inventive in terms of educational structure, use of property, walking the path of correct subsidy projects and structuring finances.

To prevent (often severe) financial problems, one must often choose for either "shrinkage" (dismissal, reorganization, restructuring, selling real estate etc.), or joining forces by forming partnerships, respectively by merging with other institutions.

In the latter issues of cooperation agreements, merger structuring, governance, transfer of pension rights, retaining subsidies and such, play a role.
