Schaap Advocaten Notarissen

Our approach


show more

When you come from Rotterdam, you are enterprising, efficient and always looking for results. For the past 110 years, Schaap and its lawyers and civil-law notaries have worked for a wide range of well-established national and international companies. With our corporate and real estate specializations, we have a lot to offer to our clients. We can be your sparring partner, your sounding board, temporary addition to your own legal department or simply your confidential advisor. Whatever you need us to be, we always aim to be excellent value for money.

Ready for action

With around forty lawyers and civil-law notaries, we are a medium-sized law firm. This means we can deliver top-quality legal work while remaining flexible and personally involved. You have one main contact who makes sure that the right people are available and can get to work fast. So we’re always ready for action.


Schaap is completely independent, and we cherish that independence. But we are also a member of the PLG International Lawyers Network and FLI, which gives us access to local know-how all over the world. For international cases, we are still free to choose our partners. In other words: quality and specific experience are always more important to us than the people in our network. Because cross-border cases need effective and efficient solutions.
