Company profile

HiiL in a Nutshell

We built procedures for divorce/separation, for personal injury and for international (wildlife) crimes that are widely seen as game changers. We measure access to justice and build networks of innovators. We believe legal procedures should be developed, tested and improved in the same way as treatments in the healthcare sector. So we work evidence based, and our procedures mobilise new technologies methods,
We are based in The Hague and offer attractive employment conditions. However, financial remuneration is not our main motivator. What drives us is a passion to make justice work.
