FG Lawyers

FG Lawyers is a boutique law firm founded in 2013, focusing on corporate & (alternative) finance from a transaction, advisory and litigation perspective. Both the founding partners, Jan Paul Franx and Gijs Gerretsen, and Frits Oldenburg who joined subsequently as of counsel , were for many years partners at NautaDutilh and each of them have more than 25 years experience as lawyers and civil law notary respectively. Anne Hakvoort, who joined as a partner in 2015, also spent the  first six years of her legal career at NautaDutilh. Before joining FG Lawyers, Anne broadened her expertise at international firm Eversheds.  
 
Besides working in Amsterdam, each of the partners has also practiced or studied law abroad (London and New York). The partners have a proven track-record acting as advisors for a wide variety of enterprises in a number of industry sectors, ranging from small businesses to multinationals and from family owned companies to financial institutions.  
 
FG Lawyers advises - both national and cross border - on M&A, private equity, joint ventures, capital markets transactions and related securities law issues, corporate governance, bank financing, alternative financing such as crowdfunding and credit unions, debt sale and financial and regulatory issues. The firm assists clients with  transactions and advises on the best legal structure to suit the client's strategy and vision. FG Lawyers often represents clients in court or arbitration proceedings.  
 
Where necessary FG Lawyers works closely with boutique firms focusing on other areas of law. In this way the firm is able to provide a  full service. The professional background of the partners means that FG Lawyers has a wide network of contacts with foreign law firms. As FG Lawyers is not a member of any international association of law firms, the firm can, in a cross border matter, choose a firm from within its extensive network which is most suitable for the job at hand. 
 
FG Lawyers is a specialist firm without any fuss or strings attached: the interest of the client is its priority and it can help the client achieve an optimal legal solution. In doing so FG Lawyers offers reasonable fees and a flexible fee structure. Solution driven, pragmatic, open-minded, personal and good quality: that is what FG Lawyers stands for.  
 
In 2015 FG Lawyers obtained the recognition ‘Recommended Law Firm’ from Global Law Experts, ‘Excellence in securities laws’ from Corporate LifeWire and ‘Securities Law firm of the year in the Netherlands’ from Corporate Intl. Anne Hakvoort was specifically named as a ‘Recommended Attorney’
