Who are we?

The Legal Expat Desk, LED for short, is based in the international city of law (The Hague) and is an information hub, advising the expat community living and working in The Netherlands. We were founded in 2006 by GMW advocaten, and have since worked with a wide network of legal experts and notaries, all trusted partners of LED.
We regularly publish articles covering a wide spectrum of legal topics. Our experts deliver clear and concise advice, and also keep the public informed about changes in the Dutch legal system.
All the LED- experts – as listed – have been selected because of their extensive experience and expertise in handling legal matters with international aspects. For clarity – from the source.
