VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne has been a household name in national and international law in the Dutch Caribbean for 85 years. With our offices on Curaçao, Bonaire, Aruba and St. Maarten (from where Saba and St. Eustatius are also served), we assist national and international clients, having what it takes to bring the big deals and court cases to a successful conclusion. Chambers Global and the Legal 500 have recognized this and we have held the highest position in those rankings for many years.
We have built our existence on our cooperation with you and all our other local and international clients, associates and suppliers. We are also a firm that grows and rejuvenates and responds to recent developments. We do this at the heart of the jurisdictions and communities in which we operate. We realize that this strong local involvement contributes to the quality of our services in which clear and practical advice of the highest quality is the starting point.
For the next 85 years (and beyond), we want to further develop the same principles and build on and strengthen our reputation as the number one legal services provider. We do this with our motivated team of lawyers and support staff who form the core of our firm. We give our talent the tools and coaching to develop further and ensure the continuity of our firm for the future, so that we can continue to serve you at the highest level.
In addition, we want to highlight our core activities in the Dutch Caribbean. As the most suitable local counsel for cross-border issues we aspire to expand our client roster internationally and especially the Netherlands with firms and clients that often require Dutch Caribbean counsel.
All this comes with a new name. A name that on the one hand emphasizes our strong local involvement and tradition and on the other hand concisely confirms what we stand for. A name that symbolizes a firm that is supported by our talent, which develops, grows and guarantees the continuity of our firm. As of March 31, 2022, our name will change to VANEPS. With this new name, we hold on to what is familiar, but we also set a trend for the next 85 years, where we will continue to serve you in the manner you are accustomed to and in cooperation with our partners in the Dutch Caribbean.
