Nudge is proud to announce that Van Doorne, a top-tier independent Dutch law firm and established in 1930, will be Support Partner in the Global Leadership Challenge of this year. Van Doorne’s strengths lie in making connections and this makes its advice and approach very solid. The 160 lawyers, notaries and tax specialists are recognised as leading experts in their discipline, as well as in the sectors in which they operate. The firm is an important advisor of leading Dutch and international companies, financial institutions, semi-public organizations and government agencies and acts as the State Advocate for the Dutch Ministry of Finance.
Van Doorne contributes to juridical solutions to new questions. For example, they continuously develop new initiatives in the field of social entrepreneurship in order to inspire and encourage this development. The firm has, for example, actively contributed to the endowed chair in the field of social entrepreneurship in the Netherlands. Furthermore, Van Doorne provides consultancy services for the first Social Impact Bond of the Netherlands. Therefore, Van Doorne distinguishes itself as the most important legal expert in the field of social entrepreneurship.
As leadership and sustainability are highly important to Van Doorne, they have decided to send one of their young professionals to the Global Challenge where the participant has the opportunity to work with other talents from all over the world to incite positive change. The firm finds both the professional and the social and personal development of the lawyer important. This extensive development broadens and sharpens the understanding of business. Also, the diversity of personalities of its employees enriches the culture of Van Doorne as a firm, enabling them to offer more to their clients, too. The firm has proven to be a very successful Support Partner of the Challenge. It has provided winners of the Challenge in 2012 (Sjoerd Kamerbeek), 2013 (Leonie Schapink) en 2015 (Rosalie Tordoir). Nudge looks forward to welcoming Van Doorne’s next talent in this year’s edition of the Global Leadership Challenge.
