The Embassy Desk of Russell Advocaten, a corporate full-service law firm in the Netherlands that is well-established within the diplomatic world, is hosting two seminars for Ambassadors and Embassy staff on Monday the 12th of June between 12:00 and 14:00 in Amsterdam. Two parallel sessions will focus on Employment Law (personnel handbook, illness, etc.) and Real Estate (government permits, environment, (sub)lease etc.). During these interactive sessions, practical legal questions and developments will be discussed. The aim of the event is to present relevant information in an easily accessible way.
The Employment Law session will mainly focus on the effect of a personnel handbook in preventing employment related legal issues. The Embassy Desk will discuss the importance of applying rules and instructions and the positive effects thereof. The Real Estate session will provide an introduction to Dutch Real Estate Law, with a focus on government permits and building restrictions for Embassies and their neighbours. The seminar will be preceded by a lunch. To learn more about the activities and services of the Embassy Desk, please click here.
