H.B. Determann

We have had very good experiences with LVH Advocaten for several years. The firm is characterised by a down-to-earth Rotterdam work mentality combined with excellent business knowledge. In our last cooperation, Mr. R.C. Steenhoek assisted us as an advisor during the settlement of a bankruptcy. Due to his extensive experience as a trustee, Mr. Steenhoek is very knowledgeable in these matters. He is very approachable, knows how to point out important details, thinks many steps ahead and comes up with a clear plan of action. During the settlement of the bankruptcy case with the receiver, Mr. Steenhoek represented us excellently. We are very satisfied with the result achieved and are convinced that without his expertise we would not have been able to handle the case in this way.

P.E. van Erk

In 2019 and 2020, we approached LVH Lawyers for advice on how to end the case in a careful and competent manner. This was resolved in a completely practical manner and within a very short period of time. He always had his full attention for my story. It was settled very neatly. The cooperation was perfect!

I would like to thank Mr Rob Steenhoek for this.
