As a boutique law firm, we focus on the fields of transport, logistics, maritime, trade & customs and liability & insurance. We assist national and international companies in these sectors in complex projects, transactions and disputes.
Our specialist lawyers understand the technical and commercial objectives of our clients, their position in the market and the sector. This allows us to quickly and accurately get to the heart of the legal issue with an eye for commercial interests.
For cross-border projects, transactions or disputes, we work closely with several niche firms with the same approach and philosophy as Leeward. However, these relationships are not exclusive, which allows us to put together a tailor-made and integrated team of experts for each specific project. Our approach guarantees efficient coordination of cross-border projects, regardless of their nature or complexity.
Our clients want a law firm that they can trust. A firm that commits to and invests in a sustainable relationship. Leeward puts its clients at the heart of everything it does. We want our clients to experience that they have made the right choice, every time.
In order to offer our clients the best service, we approach each legal problem as a team, with a focus on cost efficiency, professionalism and practical applicability.
We continuously invest in our know-how, technology and work processes to ensure that we can provide the best service in the shortest possible time. We are very competitive, especially when it comes to our clients. Driven by our curiosity, we strive for added value in their business operations.
This mindset helps Leeward pursue success, but when it comes to trying out new approaches, we ensure that they are always rational and responsible. With this Leeward mindset we want to distinguish ourselves from other offices.
We understand that clients require lawyers to demonstrate cost effectiveness and make efforts to reduce legal costs as much as possible. Leeward applies a "no-surprises policy" that guarantees price certainty and transparency.
What does this mean for you?
Leeward offers transparant, competitive and flexible remuneration structures. In this way, we try to align our interests as closely as possible with those of our clients.
Are you interest in: (i) price selection, (ii) price certainty, or (iii) fee risk sharing.
Depending on your file, the following fee agreements can be made: (i) traditional hourly rate, (ii) fixed fee by which a fixed price is agreed for a project or a particular stage of a procedure, (iii) capped fees by which a maximum fee is agreed, or (iv) a conditional fee arrangement by which the fee is linked to the risk of litigation.
If we have a clear picture of what is important to you and the extent to which you want to take a price risk or share that risk, we will develop a tailor-made rate.
Our aim is to ensure that, no matter how specific your project or dossier is, you are convinced that you get value for money.
