Lexwell.... established on Sint Maarten in 2001, emanated from the branch office of the law firm Winkel Soliana & Grul that originated from Curacao with a history going back to the 1970s.The branch office was established on Sint Maarten in September 1992. The firm evolved with the Windward Islands, serving as a legal partner for many of the leading businesses on the Island.
On November 1, 2001 the Sint Maarten office separated from the other branches of Winkel Soliana & Grul and continued independently under the name Lexwell Attorneys at Law.
In the 20 years behind us, the firm established a fine reputation as the pre-eminent provider of legal services on our Island. We regularly handle among the most complex and challenging transactions and litigation work facing the Sint Maarten business community.
We are not a mega-size law firm; On the contrary. We currently have 8 lawyers to render legal services on Sint Maarten and the other Dutch Caribbean Islands, like Curacao and Aruba, and we are committed to build a long lasting professional relation. Our lawyers were educated on the finest Universities in the Netherlands and the United States. They excel in what they do.
As a substantial part of our clients are foreign investors and entrepreneurs, we have built longstanding relationships with leading law firms in major U.S. and European jurisdictions. We work together with many of them on a regular basis and we are accustomed to working with clients, and lawyers, from around the world.
We make it our mission to accomplish your goal; well...uh..that is all website rhetoric...The truth is that we really enjoy what we are doing. We like to help new entrepreneurs succeed and grow and we like helping established firms prosper while protecting them against the pitfalls of the law. For us it's a passion. And we are good at it.
