We believe that every business and organisation
deserves the best legal advice.


Sometimes you need legal counsel. To make a difference or to add value.

Whether to fight for you, or to help structure and negotiate a transaction, or just to spark your own strategic thinking about a way forward.

It's at those times that you deserve a reliable and experienced advisor who provides bespoke, practical and to the point advice. Advice that is responsive and transparent, with an approach based on your wishes and requirements, including legal spend. That's us, Forest Flint.


We are Forest Flint.

Forest Flint unites highly experienced and dedicated lawyers who love their work and share the strong belief that every business and organisation, big or small, foreign or domestic, profit or non-profit, deserves the best legal advice. High-end service should not be anyone’s exclusive prerogative.

We are keen to solve complex problems and are not afraid to move outside our comfort zone, to think outside the box. We listen carefully and always try to understand your needs above all else. And we have the experience, expertise and creativity to deliver.

Our mindset is practical and entrepreneurial. We share our expectations and, whether or not we have exceeded them, we invite you to do the same.



The world is changing.

The law does not operate in a vacuum, but defines the way we relate to one another. Every business and organisation is also a corporate citizen, and we are keenly aware of that perspective. Not only to serve our clients, but also because we ourselves are part of society. And we want to contribute.

Organised as a cooperative association, the principle of cooperation is embedded in our DNA. At Forest Flint, we cherish our differences and share a common purpose. To provide high quality legal advice and support. In a way that is accessible and at a price that is realistic.

Because that’s how it should be.

What    (Pre) crisis

If you need help with the authorities, we are a highly experienced one-stop-shop. We provide counsel on the right thing to do if there is a suspicion of irregularities within your company, if you are being investigated, if you face penalties or if an authority is – unexpectedly – at your reception desk.

Also, before that stage we are there to help you. If you have any questions on contract clauses from compliance perspective, need to file a transaction with the competition authorities, wonder whether there is a risk of state aid or a public tender requirement, or perform a general risk assessment of your company’s regulatory compliance, feel free to reach out.

We appreciate the highly confidential and often urgent nature of these matters and are always able to accommodate.

What    Corporate

Providing legal advice and assistance in M&A transactions is the bread and butter of what we do, whether on the buy side or sell side, to counsel target management or to assist in due diligence. We provide expert guidance in corporate governance questions, in the context of transactions and otherwise.

What    Litigation

If you are concerned about commercial liability or need help to fight for your position, we are happy to review your legal position and provide practical and strategic (litigation) advice.

We can also help when a dispute is simmering in or around your company. We are well-versed in these situations and provide counsel to companies, boards and shareholders alike. If it is necessary to go all-out, we know our way to the courts.

That said, defusing conflicts at an earlier (confidential) stage is generally preferable for parties that are in business together. Do reach out in time so we can discuss options.

What    Panic Button
