Who we are and what we do
Legal Expat Desk is an information hub that provides the expat community in The Netherlands with information about Dutch law and advice from legal experts.
We connect internationals living in The Netherlands with English-speaking lawyers who help them solve their legal problems. Our knowledge base provides insights into Dutch law, clear answers to frequently asked questions and articles about key topics affecting people today.
As an independent advisory service, we are able to offer multiple perspectives that help you to strengthen your legal position.
In 2006, GMW lawyers created the Legal Expat Desk in response to the need they saw in the expat community: a need for accessible information about Dutch law and how it applies to expats. As more experts joined the service, it expanded to address additional areas of law and provide insights from an extended network.
Today, Legal Expat Desk has grown into a trusted resource for internationals in The Hague and all over the Netherlands.
More than just legal information
Legal Expat Desk works with a network of partners, expat organisations and key community stakeholders to deliver insights on key topics affecting expats.
