Legalance's services are those of a 'regular' lawyer (jurist) on university level. How are they different from those of an 'advocaat' (solicitor, barrister)? An advocaat has more procedural powers, is more educated, is obliged to keep on training and has to organize his/her law firm in a certain way. That makes the hourly rates of an advocaat higher. If you called in Legalance you are still free to transfer your case to an advocaat any time.

Please check the Dutch page for current basic rates.

Are you on a budget or do you prefer to do it youself? You will find handy documents in the web store.

   Legalance could assist on a flexible basis, from short term freelance-assignments - such as literature search, case law investigation, drafting documents or drafting c.q. reviewing contracts - to long term hiring as an interim jurist for law firms, notary offices, companies and non-profit organisations. Assignments could regard the above mentioned fields. Besides hybrid and remotely, the work an be done inhouse in particular in the region Den Haag / Rotterdam (Spijkenisse) / Breda. Work can be done quite flexible and green outside Randstad as well.
   You will be making the (price)agreements and the planning directly with Legalance. The short line saves you time and money. The flexibility gives the opportunity to tailor to meet your needs. Charging will be based on actual worked hours. This is why costs are minimal and services are affordable for almost every business or solicitor (advocaat) who is working on his own.
   The freelance- or interim services as a lawyer (jurist) or paralegal shall be done from entrepreneurship with a full business operation. Social fees, taxes, insurances and educational costs will be paid by Legalance and holidays, vacation pay, payments during sick-leave and other (hidden) personnel costs are not an issue. Moreover, upon the termination of the collaboration you do not have employment obligations, such as a transition payment or contract change[1].
   Confidentiality is evident for every assignment and privacy of your relations is a default value. If a certificate of conduct is desired or required, it will be provided.
   The convenience of freelance, a fraternal click and trust are a good basis for sometimes years of collaboration.

Hand drawn illustrations for legal design
Illustrations are important for the graphic design of all kinds of messages or expressions. It will be from the increasing focus on preventive and proactive practices that there is a growing awareness of this in the legal world as well. Illustrations could make legal information more user friendly for those who are not educated in law or make legal proceedings more clear. With, besides the legal,  also illustrative diploma's in the pocket Legalance is able to work interdisciplinary, understand the matter, think  along with you from a creative and legal perspective and visualize the subject more effectively.
     Based on the idea that a message will be more effective with an illustration Anneke has been making  illustrations for a variety of applications for years. Texts do draw attention from the audience earlier or the illustrations contributes as a visual explanation to the understanding of texts or make sure readers do remember texts better. Everything is possible in a drawing (different from photography) and it has the ability to make the experience more nuanced or more intense. Anneke's first illustrations for legal design were about constitutional law and European law and date back from 2009.
      Legal design is designing legal information in a way that helps people to understand the law, for example by using visual elements such as illustrations, animation, icons or infographics. This contributes to the accessibility of the law, prevention of problems and solving legal questions. Visual elements could be used in contracts, decisions or brochures and websites with information about regulation. Anneke's illustrations for legal design are hand drawn and -painted with amongst others water colour (aquarelle), acrylic, graphite, (coloured) pencil, Indian ink, ecoline, pastel chalk and/or charcoal and may be post-processed digitally if necessary.
     It is common practice to use a written briefing (description of the assignment) mentioning the legal problem or opportunity as a starting point in the process to solutions, the application of the illustration, the size, the technique, the style, possible deadline and information about delivery. The technique, style and deadline should be balanced. License agreements will be drafted separately.
     Freelance- or interim services in legal design shall be provided from entrepreneurship with a full business operation, conditions and rates included. Social fees, taxes, insurances and educational costs will be paid by Legalance and holidays, vacation pay, payments during sick-leave and other (hidden) personnel costs are not an issue. Moreover, upon the termination of the collaboration you do not have employment obligations, such as a transition payment or contract change[1].
