Not just
another law firm

About us


Rockwater Legal is an independent Dutch corporate law firm with an international focus. Our team of dedicated lawyers and legal specialists provide high level advice in the field of corporate law, transactions, corporate litigation and other company-related legal areas. We call ourselves, Impact Lawyers, because we strongly believe that we must always strive to make a positive impact on society and the (natural) world. 


One of a kind
We have our own view of what a law firm should be: we truly believe in collaborative working and creating a partnership based on mutual respect and trust.


Clever legal strategies
For us the law is a means to an end, not the holy grail to solve problems. We will therefor not bother our clients with lengthy memos or unreadable contracts. Our aim is to come up with clever legal strategies and solutions that fully align with our client’s goals and objectives.


True business partner
We take a proactive approach to protect and safeguard our client’s business needs. We are dedicated to solving problems, but like to focus on preventing them. As a result, we pride ourselves on being the trusted advisor and long-term business partner to a significant number of mid-sized and (mostly sustainable) multinational companies in domestic and international jurisdictions.


Small footprint, large impact
We are also a fully remote working office, so our footprint is small. We like it that way. While working in an office is still common practice for most law firms, we believe that working remotely is the best and most effective way to serve our clients, our people and our planet!

Our services


Our services entail a wide range of topics in the field of corporate law, with a focus on sustainability (ESG). We are part of a widespread international network of highly regarded law firms, which enables us to also assist our clients in other jurisdictions. As such, we provide a one-stop solution for almost every legal challenge or opportunity a company may encounter.

  • Top notch
  • Business minded
  • Local presence – international scope

Our clients


Our clients are (mostly sustainable) companies, ranging from mid-size to multinational corporations, family businesses and (large-scale) start-ups in domestic and international jurisdictions, operating in a wide variety of industries. We also serve as (strategy) sparring partner of several board executives and major shareholders. To become our client a company must be or striving to be ESG proof and as such willing to embrace the related rules and regulations. We can then make a true positive impact together!

Because of our long-term relationships with several of our clients, we have above – average knowledge and experience in the following industries:


  • Energy & sustainability (ESG)
  • IT & software
  • Fashion & art
  • Healthcare & housing corporations
