By combining these three disciplines, Kennedy Van der Laan |Sync helps optimize the work processes of in-house legal departments.

Clients vary from in-house legal departments and legal counsel of large enterprises to small start-ups. Kennedy Van der Laan |Sync advises on the optimization of work processes, offers specialist (software)tools, assists with the implementation and supports clients with project management.
Kennedy Van der Laan |Sync Director Jeroen Zweers: “Operational Excellence is a hot topic in many organizations. Legal departments still have a lot to gain here and are in need of innovative solutions to improve their work processes. This is where we come in.”
