Embassies and consulates naturally take part in legal transactions in the Netherlands. Embassies and consulates do so, for example, by concluding contracts with Dutch companies and persons in the Netherlands.
Examples of contracts to which Dutch law may be applicable, and which all embassies and consulates will have to conclude on a regular basis, are:

When an embassy or consulate in the Netherlands is confronted with a legal problem, it does not want just any lawyer. They want a good lawyer who has knowledge of the special legal position of embassies and consulates and who also has affinity with the precarious sensitivities that can come into play when an embassy or consulate is involved in legal transactions. As the son of a diplomat, I understand the delicate position of the diplomatic envoy. This is something I have been taught at a young age. The trust that embassies and consulates place in me is a matter of honour for me. Their special interest is leading for me as a lawyer.
