If you run a company in the food and agriculture industry, if you are involved in nature development or if you manage a country estate, then you will invariably have to deal with regulations, which moreover change frequently. What is more, anyone operating in rural areas has to find a balance between divergent interests. Examples are recreation, the constantly expanding infrastructure and built-up areas, the protection of areas of historical interest, and flexible water management. That certainly does not make it any easier to do business. Bosselaar Strengers is happy to help you find your way in what is often an opaque and at times frustrating maze of rules and stakeholders.
