About us


Corrine Holdinga, civil-law notary, Arnoud Matthijssen, prospective civil-law notary, Bart Kraak, former civil-law notary.

As of January 1st 2013 we started a new Amsterdam based notary firm.

Having worked together on complex and high profile corporate and real estate matters at one of the leading Amsterdam law firms, we decided to start our own firm as of January 1st 2013. We feel we are competent and experienced.


For whom

We provide legal advice to entrepreneurial clients, directors-owners, family business owners, investors, shareholders and other stakeholders. We focus on entrepreneurs and businesses but we also assist Not-for-profit organizations.



We advise, guide and direct your notarial affairs. We often do so jointly with your tax advisor, accountant, corporate finance advisor and/or attorney. Not only do we provide services concerning corporate and real estate law but also in the areas of family law. This of course is due to the overlap which often occurs when private and business interests meet and mix. We have an international perspective and all have relevant experience with cross border transactions and transnational legal matters. We are thus able to serve internationally operating clients to the fullest extent.



We put your wishes and needs first. Whether you need detailed reporting, help to grasp the bigger picture, a quick check-up or the full works. Whatever it is, you decide, your interests will be leading to us. No lengthy and extensive advice if that does not further your needs. No large teams but dedicated professionals. Immediate and thorough services at competitive rates.



Just like you, we are entrepreneurs. We stand by you, because we recognize and value your interests and needs and, more importantly, are therefore able to convert what you need in what will get you there, the proper legal steps. This has never been truer now because of the ever changing legislation and the complex nature of business in current times. We guard your interests with a keen eye.


The value we add

We aim to be your long term legal partner and trusted advisor. A long term partnership which adds value and offers valuable insights is our goal. We aim to be an open, flexible and creative partner, a partner for whom a deed is not the end of a deal but rather the beginning of a relationship. This approach, in combination with our knowledge, experience and up to date fees, make us a unique player in our field. The current market is either serviced by large and impersonal firms with high hourly fees or small general practise offices lacking feel for your specific field of business. We offer the alternative.
