You want to start a business but what legal form should you choose? A (private) limited liability company (BV), a public (limited) company (NV) or a foundation? Or maybe just a partnership? Liabilities and risks are determining factors. GMW advocaten can advise you on this difficult selection process. 

When choosing an appropriate legal form the nature of your business activities is important. Each company is different. The question is also whether the business involves a lot or little risk. In addition, it is relevant to know whether you have to deal with claims. The size of the business also plays a role.

Of course we monitor developments in relevant legislative changes closely and if necessary, incorporate these into our advice. We can summarize the advantages and disadvantages of the various legal forms for you and advise on what legal form best suits your needs. We meticulously analyze your business including current and future activities. For example we check whether it makes sense to limit your liability by means of a limited liability company. We can also make an assessment of the risks you run (present and future) and of course, how to cover these.
