Kouwenaar Advocatuur

Your partner in Dutch Business Law

Kouwenaar Advocatuur, established in Nijkerk, focuses mainly on entrepreneurs, businesses (including those of self-employed professionals), profit and non-profit organisations and (statutory) executive(s). Antoinette Kouwenaar, an experienced and dedicated lawyer, has all Dutch legal knowledge and experience needed to provide entrepreneurs and managers with the best possible advice.

Transparent and accessible

You can count on rapid accurate information, transparent and useful advice, excellent (telephone) accessibility and, last but not least, a professional, reliable and personal approach.
We strive to achieve solid long-term relationships, thereby making the necessary investments, and use our up-to-date knowledge and expertise to serve your interests.


Our guiding principle is: avoid litigation wherever possible, litigate efficiently and effectively if it cannot be avoided! Every legal case requires a unique approach, whether it involves advice, negotiating or litigating. In short, for Kouwenaar Advocatuur there are no standard approaches, only tailor-made solutions.

We see things from your perspective, irrespective of whether it is about advising you on a non-competition clause, or about an entire advisory process, e.g., in relation to a takeover or a reorganisation, whereby expertise, speed and extensive experience are indispensable.

We can provide you at an early stage with useful advice about an impending corporate law dispute, in many cases thus ensuring that the damage is limited or avoided altogether. We can detect in advance where potential legal problems and pitfalls could arise, thus enabling you to respond in good time, for example, by drafting or amending contracts or agreements.

If matters should (threaten to) get out of hand, Kouwenaar Advocatuur will not refrain from taking Dutch legal measures, e.g., demand the issue of a seizure order.

Entrepreneurs deal with such matters as corporate law, contract law, employment law and debt collection on a daily basis. However, should you find yourself facing imminent director’s liability, contact us, and you will find you are at the right address.

Antoinette Kouwenaar-de Coninck, the founder and owner of our Amersfoort family business, will deploy her up-to-date knowledge of law, her enormously practical approach – and above all a massive dose of enthusiasm and focus – to defend your interests, without ever losing sight of the context and other interests.

Her partner, Werner de Coninck, provides excellent management support and contributes optimally to providing a service, which is what Kouwenaar Advocatuur is all about.

If you find yourself confronted with a (possible) corporate law dispute, or if – for safety’s sake – you would just like to use us a sounding board, or if you need advice, feel free to contact us!
