Legal opinions

Banks, other finance parties and business partners alike frequently ask for legal opinions. For example, if a Dutch company issues a guarantee, the relevant Dutch or international bank often requires confirmation that this company actually exists, that all internal decision-making is in order and that the guarantee is legally enforceable. Clients often ask for a legal opinion when entering into ISDA Swap transactions, project finance, takeovers and construction projects.
