Law firm launche new team for Governance, Risk and Compliance

The Daily Herald writes that Law firm Van Eps Kunneman Van Doorne is launching a specialised team in Governance, Risk and Compliance. The firm engages Robbert Kroon of The Galan Group as Counsel for this purpose. Together with Frank Kunneman, Kroon will be the face of the new practice group. Kunneman and Kroon has advised, published and lectured on corporate governance, risk and compliance for years. Robbert Kroon says about his move: “As a manager and partner with several consultancy firms, I have often worked closely together with the legal profession in this area. This combined expertise gives clients an understanding of all essential aspects of corporate governance. “This resulted in the need for more structural cooperation. In my role as Counsel, I add non-legal advice to the existing services of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne. For instance, guidance in change management or the implementation of processes.”

Van Eps Kunneman Van-Doorne advises the profit and non-profit sector on governance and compliance. With a specialised team, the firm strengthens the focus on the subject. The firm will offer its broadened package of services on all islands of the Dutch Caribbean. Examples are compliance programmes, courses for directors and supervisors and a Corporate Governance Scan, determining to what extent organisations comply with Codes of Corporate Governance. Frank Kunneman said, “In the Dutch Caribbean, the focus on transparency and compliance has been growing for several years. This is the right time for a multi-disciplinary team with an appropriate range of services and products. With Robbert on board, we offer the entire range of advice.”

Van Eps Kunneman Van Doorne is a law firm with 35 lawyers assisting joint clients from offices on Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, St. Maarten and the Dutch Caribbean Desk in Amsterdam. Through the ‘Flying Lawyers’ concept, its office also serves Saba, St. Eustatius and Suriname.

The firm provides legal services to businesses and governments, both in litigation and transactions, and claims to be the Dutch Caribbean region leader in legal services and says to be involved in virtually all local, intra-island and international issues within the Dutch Caribbean.
