Van Baren Legal Advice Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I very much like to be able to clearly explain to people who don't have a legal background the sometimes very confusing and difficult world of law. It is nice to be able to give people a clear view of what their legal position is and to advise them on their options.
What inspired you to start your own business?
After working for the judiciary in my home country (The Netherlands) for years, I decided to follow my partner, who got a job in London. I was already on the top-level in my area of work and got more and more frustrated by how things developed in the big organization I worked in. In the back of my mind, I always had the plan to start my own business and I always desired to live abroad for a while as well. So everything came together at the perfect time and I decided to take the big scary leap in the open.
I am convinced I can add something to the already very busy market of legal advice. Of course I have the knowledge needed to provide clients with professional advice, but I am also very dedicated to my clients. Clear and fast communication and being easily approachable are very important to me. In my opinion, this requires a relationship with clients based on equality. Therefore, I try not to create too much distance and get on the same level as my client. This also means I don't necessarily wear a suit when I see clients.
While in The Netherlands it is perfectly normal to hire a legal advisor instead of a qualified lawyer for certain legal issues, in the UK it seems people are a bit more conservative in their choice when in need of legal advice. It is true that I am not a qualified lawyer and can, for example, therefore not represent clients in a court of law. But as a graduate in law (LLM) I do know a lot about law and I have other qualifications needed to do a good job. This means I can very well provide a lot of services, as long as they are not the privilege of a qualified lawyer. Such as drafting contracts and advise people about how to protect their creations and trademarks. And the advantage is that my fees are lower than those of traditional law firms. Clients I served have all been very happy with the work I performed for them.
