Legal advice

Information in Dutch can be found here.

The T.M.C. Asser Instituut traditionally advises on (complex) legal issues in the area of international and European law. An important target group is the Dutch legal practice, legal professionals and notaries, and sometimes also the judiciary. Legal advice mainly relates to private international law and/or foreign private law. In principle, written or digital sources are used. For research into complex questions, we sometimes collaborate with experts from the Netherlands or abroad.

Should you consider asking the institute for advice, you may submit your query by e-mail ( You will then receive a response as soon as possible, in which we will indicate what solution we can offer. Generally we will be able to inform you swiftly on the estimated number of hours that we will require to draw up the advice. This estimate is free of charge.

The hourly rate for the provision of advice is € 195,-. These costs will be increased by a once-only amount of € 30,- for administration costs per advice. All amounts are exclusive of VAT.
