Develop firm and vendor relationships that deliver value

Current reality

Today, firms and vendors are often selected either for tactical reasons or due to personal relationships. Lacking clear alternatives, In-House Legal Departments may default to traditional pricing and staffing models, which can deliver less accountability and value.

MR. BAS A.S. VAN LEEUWEN (LL.M., ESQ.), attorney at law and forensic auditor, assists clients with criminal matters, administrative supervision and enforcement cases, and internal and external investigations. Cases involving accusations of fraud, bribery, money laundering, corruption or violations, financial mismanagement, of international sanctions seriously disrupt a client’s operations and damage their reputation. At a client’s request, the attorney can conduct internal investigations, advice, litigate and negotiate with regulators and the Public Prosecution Service. He delivers swift solutions that address the underlying problems for urgent matters. Sometimes, his clients are injured by non-compliant conduct; sometimes they find themselves accused of the same.
