Recent cases handled by Tom
Strategic acquisitions in investment companies
Tom regularly supervises a Dutch investment company during acquisitions aimed at expanding and strengthening their portfolio. Tom works with the investment company to determine the most suitable type of legal advice for each acquisition on a case-by-case basis. This generally yields recommendations on the statement of intent, legal due diligence investigation, preparation and negotiation of the transaction documents and finalisation of the transaction at the civil-law notary.

‘Our cooperation with Tom van Dijk is characterised by his drive, and his ability to see things from the client's perspective. As a lawyer, Tom really goes the extra mile to put himself in your shoes and always goes for the best possible outcome.
