About our firm
Word and deed
VANEPS is the leading Dutch Caribbean law firm. We provide our clients – regional and international – with practicable solutions that answer to their specific challenges and ambitions. Our passion is to tangibly contribute to our clients’ objectives, with advice and assistance tailored to their specific business, market and objectives.
This website is not just a mere website, but a way of bringing this belief in practice. In order for our clients to anticipate to opportunities and developments, they need to be informed. We help them in that regard through this platform, on which we share and exchange know-how with everyone that is interested in the legal landscape of the Dutch Caribbean and Suriname.
We are aware of the corporate social responsibility that our position as the largest law firm in the Dutch Caribbean entails. Our employees, our clients and the local communities in which we work, value the socially responsible manner in which we drive our business. For example, in 2011 we were appointed the most female friendly organization in Curaçao. Our Excellence Program – which matches talents with competencies and thus enables targeted development of our employees – shows that we strive for the best when it concerns our human resources as well.
We support underprivileged groups in various ways. We donate to different charities and offer pro bono legal services to non-profit organizations. This way, our firm supports the development of education, social education and culture in the Dutch Caribbean region. When we sponsor events or other initiatives, we focus on the development of the local youth and on sustainability.
To conclude, we contribute to the legal system of the islands we work and live on, by holding positions in different bar associations, the Supervisory Boards for Lawyers, and the Appeal Councils on various islands.
