Van Doorne is a leading independent Dutch law firm with around 175 lawyers that has a broad range of legal expertise, including European and competition law. Their mission is to empower people and organisations and to work on responsible, permanent solutions together, something that is reflected throughout their company: from the way in which they work together to the idealistic organisations that they support. Van Doorne aims to make a contribution to tomorrow’s world in various ways. In the field of improved CSR, they determine the agenda in the Netherlands by setting up the Social Entrepreneurship chair at Utrecht University and they help their clients to discover this subject but also to be front-runners. Van Doorne acts as consultant for many successful social enterprises and impact investors in the Netherlands. They also use their knowledge for the development of new legal and financial instruments to advance social projects and initiatives relevant to them by means of Impact Investments, Van Doorne’s special sponsor programme.
The firm has proven to be a very successful Support Partner of the Challenge, since it has provided winners of the Challenge in 2012 (Sjoerd Kamerbeek), 2013 (Leonie Schapink) and 2015 (Rosalie Tordoir). Nudge is proud of its partnership with Van Doorne and is looking forward to meeting their young professional Rosanne van Peppen at this year’s Challenge.
