At Dirkzwager, we pay particular attention to the real estate sector.

We can call ourselves the strongest office in the region, thanks to decades of experience with real estate transactions.

Knowledge pooling

Good cooperation between lawyers, notaries and tax consultants is essential in real estate cases. For large assignments, we put together a team of several notaries, lawyers and tax consultants. In so doing, we bundle all the required (legal) knowledge relating to your issue. In all cases, your contact person will still be your fixed, reliable contact.

Limitless advice

Dirkzwager is also a member of TELFA, a European alliance of (medium) large, highly qualified offices. Thanks to our contact with the American network USLAW, we also have direct lines to colleagues in the US.
