Contracts Lawyer

Arjen drafted all documents for my accountancy business. He was very thorough in his work, very pleasant to communicate with and he patiently answered all of my questions. I'd happily contact Arjen again if I need any more legal advice in the future. More...

Very quick and efficient service that was reasonably priced. I had a sponsorship agreement drafted and Arjen made an effort to understand the nature of my business and helped me achieve my intended goals with the sponsorship agreement contract.

I had just launched my business when I got in touch with Arjen and he was very patient and understanding. I felt like I could trust his judgement in the matter and he replied quickly to my questions. I would recommend Arjen, he is very professional but he also has a personal approach which I think most people prefer. Thanks Arjen! More...

Working with Arjen was a great and enlightening experience. He was easy to talk to and very helpful throughout the whole process of drafting our 3 terms and conditions documents. I would thoroughly recommend.

Rated 5 stars as he has provided me some excellent legal advises for my business. I will use his services in the future.


I like to explain in a clear way the sometimes confusing and overly complicated world of law to people who don't have a legal background. Especially entrepreneurs should have a clear view of what their legal position is and try to avoid as much as possible any conflicts.

After working for the judiciary in my home country (The Netherlands) for years, me and my partner moved to London for a change. I was already on the top-level in my area of work and got more and more frustrated by how things worked in the big governmental organization I was working for. I always wanted to start my own business at some point in time and living abroad was a dream come true as well. When moving to London, everything came together and I started to develop my own business.

I am convinced I can add something to the already crowded 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 values to me. In my opinion, this requires a relationship with clients based on equality. Therefore, I try not to create too much distance between me and my client.

The advantage of the fact that I'm legally trained, but not a UK registered solicitor or barrister, is that my rates are lower than those of traditional law firms. Although some legal activities are the exclusive privilege of solicitors and/or barristers, such as representing clients in legal proceedings, many legal matters can be taken care of just as good by me. I graduated in law (LLM) and I have the qualifications and experience. Legal issues I can take care of include the drafting of various contracts and advising about the protection of intellectual property, such as creations and trademarks. Former clients, many of whom are still making use of my services, are all very content about me and my work.

VBLA is professional, fresh, easily approachable and affordable. You get the professional advice you need at a reasonable rate. Please inquire and ask for a quote. We're happy to help!

I provide all my services online and remotely. I use e-mail and video calls as well as telephone to discuss matters and keep my clients up to date.

Since I'm working remotely anyway, I did not need to make changes due to Covid-19. E-mail, telephone and Zoom all work lovely.
