Client testimonials

'DVAN has assisted us on ten acquisition projects over the past eight months. Marijke was part of the team, as one of the leading counsels. She assisted us during the due diligence investigations and was instrumental in finalising the negotiations and preparing the contracts. As a result of her involvement in previous acquisitions, we could get straight to work without much need for explanation and managed to finalise all projects within a period of just eight months. Marijke is genuinely committed and manages to keep all the involved parties on their toes in a pleasant manner. She's highly knowledgeable, focused on maintaining personal relationships, and manages to achieve excellent results.'
Maurice Buijzen, financial director of Sator Holding BV

'The lawyers at DVAN assisted us during the sale of our family business, working in collaboration with the Corporate Finance advisers at BDO. Marijke is a consummate professional who seamlessly combines a personal touch with incredible drive and a real wealth of expertise. Take it from me, that can be really comforting when you're in the process of transferring your "baby" to a stranger. We really had the sense that these people had our back, in every possible way. They always went the extra mile and didn't overlook a single detail. We were also very satisfied with the overall process and still work with Marijke and her colleagues on a regular basis. Together, we're ready to face all the challenges ahead!'
