The office

PORTLAW PILOT is a modern, multinational, specialist law firm geared to advising and supporting both a national and international client base in the shipping, logistics trade and insurance industry.

PORTLAW PILOT is a close collaboration by Rotterdam based Arnout Smit and Antwerp based Jan Daneels and Guy van Doosselaere. By being based in two of the major ports on the European Continent we can offer you specialist support in various jurisdictions in Europe.

As our slogan says: we aim to be your pilot through the sometimes dark and difficult to navigate legal waters of (international) law. We want to be both your trusted pilot to help you navigate as well as giving you a life buoy in times of emergencies. We will keep you afloat!

PORTLAW PILOT is not a traditional law firm. We find that high value specialist and good value for money service can only be achieved if both the lawyers, the client and other specialists involved in a case work closely together. We value the multi-disciplinary approach whereby all those concerned work as a team with just one aim: the solution to your problem in a professional, cost effective and satisfying way.
It is therefore that we place great value on your input and knowledge as a client. We need to know what you see as the ideal result and work towards that together. There are many solutions to a problem. One such solution is a legal solution but we find that that is never the only and exclusive solution. Flexibility of mind and innovative thinking is what we bring to the table. In partnership with our clients we aim to build a long term mutual relationship based on trust in each other. This means plain language, a pragmatic approach with respect for the commercial situation and transparent action with integrity.
