Administrative Law

Administrative Law is the body of law that governs the activities of administrative agencies of government; it also encompasses environmental and urban planning law. Common government agencies are municipal and provincial governments, tax authorities or the UWV (the Dutch Employee Insurance Agency). If you do not agree with a decision made by a similar body, you can appeal against this decision, and we can help you to do so.

The Administrative laws in the Netherlands are very particular, which means a case can depend on the smallest of details. In order to advise you in the best possible way, we’ll gladly think with you about a possible solution. In the situation where you and the concerning government agency cannot come to an agreement, we’ll draw up your official objection. Should this also be refused, we’ll assist you in drawing up a notice of appeal.
