Public law & regulatory

The government plays a major role in society. Companies and other organisations encounter the government in its capacity as regulator, licensing authority, supervisory body, subsidy provider and contracting party. In all of these situations, good advice from a party with in-depth knowledge about the government and public law is essential.

BarentsKrans has extensive expertise and experience in this field. We particularly advise and conduct proceedings about environmental law, sector-specific regulations, such as financial supervision, medicines law, the Betting and Gaming Act (Wet op de Kansspelen) and commodities legislation, special subjects like tendering, public service law, privacy and the protection of personal data, but also about general administrative law, subsidies, government liability and the Dutch Government Information (Public Access) Act (Wet openbaarheid van bestuur).

BarentsKrans acts not just for company owners that find themselves confronted with government action and activities, but also for central government and local and regional authorities, such as ministries, independent administrative bodies and municipalities. This has given BarentsKrans a good understanding of government interests and decision-making processes.
