Corporate Law

In Aruba all legal entities need to be incorporated through a civil law notary. Besides companies, we also incorporate foundations and associations. Companies can currently take the form of a limited liability company. These are known locally as vennootschap met beperkte aansprakelijkheid also known as a V.B.A. or a naamloze vennootschap also known as an N.V.  

Besides incorporating all legal entities, we also provide the following legal services with regard to companies and other legal entities:

  • amendments to articles of association of existing legal entities
  • shareholder agreements
  • bylaws / rules of procedure
  • share transfers
  • conversions
  • mergers and acquisitions
  • winding-up of legal entities
  • registrations at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry
  • requests for business and director licenses
  • certificates of good standing/incorporation and incumbency
