Organization Optimization & Health

Build effective and motivated teams

Current reality

Often, In-House Legal Departments are assembled without a clear overall vision, meaning they may hire for short-term need rather than overall fit and long-term effectiveness. In many cases, key aspects of the employee experience – such as career planning, skills development, and job satisfaction – are overlooked today.

Desired state

Design and support balanced, driven, high-impact teams. Hire for team fit and bring in a diverse, complementary mix of skills and perspectives. Identify potential leaders and encourage promising careers through targeted programs that enhance the teams’ education, experiences and exposure. Help foster a positive and engaged culture through offsites and skills development.

  • Bring a strong overall vision to your team and your HR planning
  • Design a hiring process that is objective, fair, and leads to a diverse and effective team
  • Encourage your best employees through promotions and special opportunities
  • Support your team’s well-being by focusing on work/life balance and mental health initiatives
  • Create a pipeline of talent by investing in mentoring, internship programs, and succession planning


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.
