HBN Law and DCTL join forces

DUTCH CARIBBEAN - As of June the professionals of HBN Law and DCTL (formerly KPMG Meijburg & Co Caribbean) team up as HBN Law & Tax, making it the largest legal and tax firm in the Dutch Caribbean.
Eric de Vries, Chairman of HBN Law: “With this step we strengthen our position as an attractive organization for legal talent and further optimize our service offering to clients. We have proven knowledge, expertise and experience across the board in all legal and tax areas relevant to the corporate market in the Dutch Caribbean. We also enhanced our presence in the Netherlands, where we now have offices in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.”
“Our ambition to preserve continuous quality of service is the main reason for us to team up”, Wendell Meriaan, managing partner of DCTL adds: “To stay on top of our game – every single day – we strongly depend on recruiting the best talent, preferably with local roots. If you are looking to build a career in the field of legal and tax, our firm should be the go-to in the Dutch Caribbean.”
“Before we gave the green light to join forces, an independent research was conducted exploring both cultures of our firms”, De Vries en Meriaan explain. One may see a perfect fit on paper, but at the end of the day you simply have to enjoy working with one another. We have a shared vision of the future. We cherish an open working environment that drives happiness and thus quality. We want to uphold conditions that stimulate anyone in the firm to reach their full potential and deliver accordingly. That’s how we live up to our promise: “Always there.”
