Many semi-public institutions and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have chosen The Hague as their home base. They are often set up as foundations or associations.
BarentsKrans is pleased to have various semi-public institutions and (international) NGOs among its clients and has extensive experience of setting up and helping this type of organisation. The civil-law notaries from the Corporate/M&A practice group have an unparalleled knowledge of how to apply the principles of good governance, even when a foundation or association forms part of a bigger, overarching structure.
It goes without saying that the relevant governance codes are taken into consideration too when preparing articles, charters and regulations. Our starting point at all times is to provide our clients with tailor-made advice. An understanding of the interrelationships between the various stakeholders and mindfulness of the often confidential nature of the work to be undertaken is vital too.
