  • "Elisa Palm and Pieter Stuijt are my main contact persons at Pels Rijcken. I consult both when I need to discuss something or need advice and they complement each other very well. I think this approach is a very good idea and valuable for me. Like this, they offer more expertise and more brainpower." - The Legal 500, 2023
