DVAN's history dates back some 17 years....
At the end of the nineties, BDO Accountants & Consultants set up their own legal consultancy group in order to serve the mid-range market segment of the Dutch trade & industry with full services. The new consultancy group consisted of the gentlemen Dijkstra and Voermans and a number of legal professionals. In close collaboration with BDO they built up their own practice.
In 2001 this consultancy group continued independently as Dijkstra Voermans Advocatuur. With the arrival of civil-law notary Thea Berkhout in 2002 our services were further expanded. Ever since that date, our law firm was known by the name Dijkstra Voermans Advocatuur & Notariaat.
By the end of 2014, we refreshed the corporate identity of Dijkstra Voermans Advocatuur & Notariaat in order to highlight our core values even more prominently. Over the years, many started calling us DVAN already. In 2015, it was time to make this official. This is why, since September 2015, our name is DVAN.
On 1 January 2017 we merged with law firm Hoboken Advocaten, meaning that we now proceed with more than 40 legal professionals under the name of DVAN Advocatuur & Notariaat. Thanks to this merger, we can provide our clients with an even wider range of legal services, combined with an in-depth knowledge of business sectors and areas of law.
On 1 January 2018 we changed our name to DVAN Advocaten as the notarial practice continues independently. The collaboration with the notarial practice remains so we will be able to continue to offer notarial services to our clients.
We provide our services from two centrally located offices in Utrecht and Rotterdam.
