FG Lawyers’ ambition is to use the experience which its partners built up while working in various practice areas at one of the top law firms in the Netherlands on a smaller and more personal scale for the benefit of its clients. FG Lawyers achieves this by providing high quality advice with a strong emphasis on service, a practical handling of the matter and a personal approach with short communication lines. The firm provides the highest quality of advice but at an attractive rate. FG Lawyers is fully prepared to enter into tailor-made fee arrangements with its clients.


We are a boutique law firm founded in 2013 and focusing on the combination of corporate and financial regulatory law from a transaction, advisory and litigation perspective. Our firm has a particular interest in innovative, platform or non-platform driven business models, including FinTech and Digital Finance solutions. We each have a proven track-record acting as advisors for a wide variety of enterprises in a number of industry sectors, ranging from small businesses to multinationals and from family owned companies to financial institutions.

FG Lawyers is a partner-only firm. We offer specialized expertise and many years of high-level experience at competitive rates. We unburden you with direct, short lines of communication, a quick response, legally creative solutions and by being a sparring partner to you.

We advise – both national and cross border – in the field of corporate law (including M&A, private equity, venture capital, joint ventures, corporate governance) and financial regulatory law (including authorisation procedures, scoping requests, financing, capital markets transactions and related securities law issues, compliance and integrity legislation such as AML/CFT issues). We can assist you in your transactions, advise on the best legal structure that suits your strategy and vision, but we can also support you when you or your business face litigation. We often represent our clients in court proceedings or arbitration proceedings.

Where necessary we work closely with boutique firms focusing on other areas of law. In this way we are able to provide a full service.. We act as your main contact party; we take care of the rest behind the scenes, whilst ensuring that you are able to keep track of the fees involved. The professional background of the partners means that we have a wide network of contacts with foreign law firms. As we are not a member of any international association of law firms, we can, in a cross border matter, choose a firm from within our extensive network which is most suitable for the job at hand.

We are a specialist firm without any fuss or strings attached: your interest is our priority and we can help you achieve an optimal legal solution. In doing so we offer reasonable fees and a flexible fee structure. Solution driven, pragmatic, open-minded, personal and good quality: that is what we stand for.

Our firm is a member of Holland FinTech and an associate member of the Association of Financing Companies in the Netherlands (Vereniging Financieringsondernemingen in Nederland).

Both our firm and our partner Anne Hakvoort are ranked in the FinTech Rankings of the well known and globally highly appreciated legal league table Chambers and Partners.
