ABOUT US

Dedicated and involved legal geeks; this is how the LegalTeams team can best be described.  

LegalTeams was founded by three experts with a strong background in the legal services industry. All three have a completely different education, but share the same mission: they step up to the challenge to deal with complex legal business projects ensuring success by a laser sharp focus on agreed goals, planning and budget as an independent delegate of the client. Meet Edo, Eva and Marjan. 

“We’re convinced that complex legal business projects can be dealt with more efficiently than is currently the case, as long as someone actively manages such projects.”
