On 1 January 2012, in collaboration with the Trans European Law Firms Alliance (TELFA), Dirkzwager advocaten & notarissen has launched thisinternational - English language – legal knowledge portal.

The aim of this website is to inform companies of legal developments in countries in which they do business. “What new law affects the import of goods?”, “Which ruling prohibits a firm from owning property in a country?”, “What current debate in the local media might have an impact on a firm’s business in the near future?”.

The articles can be found on this site clustered by country of origin as well as by legal expertise. The last contributions will be published on the home page; other articles can be found through the search function on the page. Each article is linked directly to the author and the author’s firm, enabling readers to contact the author directly for more information.

Via this website, 29 European law firms connected to TELFA will share their knowledge by writing and publishing legal articles. Dirkzwager advocaten & notarissen is responsible for the editorial contribution from The Netherlands.

By linking this new European knowledge portal to the website of USLAW’s initiative USLAW some articles from 60 US law firms published on USLAW Connect will also be published here and vice versa.

The Trans European Law Firms Alliance (TELFA) is an international alliance of independent law firms established in 1989. The member firms comprise more than 700 lawyers throughout Europe.
