We have been in business in Aruba since 1997, when we were the first regional firm to establish a branch on the island. We serve many of the local and international businesses on the island. We advise banks regarding financing, government(al bodies) in for instance tender procedures and legislative processes, and various companies in contracting and litigious matters. Furthermore, we have substantial practices in shipping and in aviation, as Aruba offers a favourable jurisdiction for arrest and judicial sale of vessels, and registration of aircraft.
