DCLP Top 10 Law Firms Bonaire 2013

Dutch Caribbean Legal Portal annually composes a ranking of Bonaire based law firms based on the number of lawyers, excluding tax advisors, notaries and paralegals, employed on Bonaire.
 
The Top 10 2013 indicates that the largest law firm of the region, VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne, is also growing in Bonaire. The Bonairian office of the firm comprises no less than four lawyers.
After VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne, HBN Law is also growing with two lawyers in Bonaire.
Another striking issue is that out of seven firms, only two operate independently, with only an office on the island of Bonaire.
 
Approximately 350 lawyers are officially registered at the The Joint Court of Justice of Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten and of Bonaire, Saint Eustatius and Saba. About 11 of these 350 lawyers are located in Bonaire.
