Prevention is better than cure
Lawyers mostly appear on scene after a dispute between one or more parties has already materialized. Whereas Leon Mathey does not shy away from legal proceedings, he adopts the approach of advising clients at an early stage in order to avoid legal proceedings or – should an avoidance be impossible – to take care that the client seizes a first mover advantage in a legal battle.
All sides of the table
As a jurist Leon Mathey gained experience at the court, inter alia in the field of administrative law and insolvency law. Apart from that he worked in a real estate practice group (relating to civil and administrative law) with a lawyers’ firm in Friesland. In addition to giving advice to various public authorities Leon Mathey also gladly advises entrepreneurs on a range of issues in the area of environmental law.
