In the middle of the Diplomatic center of The Netherlands
The city of The Hague hosts over 100 embassies, diplomatic missions and other international institutions and organizations. Altogether, the city is home to over 50,000 expatriates.

With offices in Amsterdam, The Hague, Luxembourg, Beijing and Shanghai, and staff originating from all over the world, Buren is uniquely qualified to provide high quality legal assistance to its international and diplomatic clients.
Located prominently in The Hague’s diplomatic quarter, we have established long-term relationships with a large number of diplomatic missions and international institutions. In doing so, we have developed a considerable degree of expertise on matters of international and diplomatic law. Additionally, our firm has long standing ties with experts from various leading institutions, such as the Clingendael Institute, the T.M.C. Asser Institute and professors from a number of renowned universities, which enables us to give the best possible advice in matters of international law.
Over the years, we have found that the requests of our clients are not limited to matters of international or diplomatic law, but also frequently extend to matters of private law, such as employment, real estate, commercial contracts and taxes. Additionally, we have found that our diplomatic clients act as a point of referral for citizens and companies from homeland, with questions on a wide variety of commercial and corporate matters.
In order to cater to the needs of our diplomatic clients and their referrals, Buren has established a dedicated Diplomat Desk. Staffed by professionals of different nationalities, speaking seven different languages, our Diplomat Desk acts as a one-stop-shop for any legal needs our diplomatic clients and their referrals may have.
