Network of legal aid for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s)
In our vision an entrepreneur should have the opportunity to access free legal advice from an expert without the cash clock clicking straight away.
AdvocatenspreekuurMKB is an idea of mr Valerie Quirina Vallenduuk, lawyer-partner of Vallenduuk Advocaten. The aim of the network is to offer entrepreneurs an accessible way to have their legal issues reviewed for free by a lawyer in their neighbourhood. It is nice to have your case reviewed by an expert without having the cash clock ticking straight away.
There are some ground rules: - You do not have to make an appointment upfront. If you want to be sure that you can have your legal issue reviewed, then you can register through this website. - If you have not made an appointment through this website, it may be that you have to wait. - The consult is exclusively for (acquainting) new clients. (if you are a regular client or have already made use of the consult hour, it is not allowed to attend the consult hour again, unless it concerns a new legal issue) - At every consulting hour at least one lawyer is available. If you register through this site, the amount of available lawyers may be adjusted. - If an immediate solution to your problem is not possible a referral can be made or another appointment can be made outside the consult hour. - When making a follow-up appointment the lawyer will discuss the financial aspects.
Specially for SME’s we offer a discount! As an entrepreneur you have to pay your own lawyer. If you possess a legal insurance then the insurance company shall appoint you a lawyer. If you don’t have an Insurance or if you are unsatisfied with the legal aid of the Insurance company, you could access a lawfirm in your neighbourhood.
Most lawyers work on the bases of hourly fee. If you register through our Network and your legal issue actually becomes a court case, you may be eligible to a 10% discount on the first 5 hours. All you need to do is print out this discount coupon. Check the participating offices if the office of your choice offers you the discount!
