How Rutger is building a better working world
“My mission is to provide holistic guidance, reduce the gap between business advisors and legal counsel and offer support services that increase the efficiency and reduce the costs of these activities. While quality in legal advice remains key, the added value is in improving the client’s business operations and legal function and offering turn-key solutions for them.”
