The firm is also active in transactional matters and its other areas of strength include real estate and telecoms work.”
The organization also had the following to add about the firm’s two top-ranked attorneys:
“Litigation heavyweight Eric R. de Vries enjoys a sterling reputation amongst sources. His creativity and flexibility are especially valued, with one client describing him as ‘a very outside- the-box thinker; he comes up with straightforward solutions to problems that initially seem quite complex.’ He is also active on financing and M&A matters and is praised by fellow lawyers for his “business-minded approach”.
“Bonaire-based Chris de Bres is recommended for his litigation practice, with clients including several international banks, as well as companies from the energy and telecoms sectors. Sources praise his detail-oriented approach. One client said: ‘He was able to give good insights into the technicalities of our case. He’s a very smart guy and was very well prepared for our hearing.’”
This is the 7th consecutive year Eric R. de Vries has been ranked as one of the best attorneys in the Dutch Caribbean by Chambers & Partners, and the 2nd consecutive year for Chris de Bres.
