Our story

During their careers in the world of legal services, Joost Tulkens and Pieter Hallebeek encountered a bottleneck at notary offices and law firms: the onboarding of new clients while continuing to comply with changing legislation. In many offices this is an inefficient, manual process. The resulting margin of error, increased supervision and the lack of a uniform working method have prompted the above-mentioned to develop a software platform especially for the notarial profession, the legal profession and tax specialists to simplify and improve onboarding of clients. Due to the imminent implementation of the fourth anti-money laundering directive in particular, many civil-law notaries, lawyers and tax specialists have difficulty with the new concepts and stricter requirements.

Joost and Pieter studied Law in Leiden and Amsterdam respectively and after graduation worked in legal services and the notarial profession. They worked in the Netherlands and abroad, with the onboarding of new clients and the cooperation with the notarial profession, the legal profession and tax specialists always being central. Joost and Pieter both have experience in compliance, writing office policy, contact with regulators, training and "client experience".

Throughout their careers, they have seen the change in regulation: from limited rules to today's complex, risk-based approach. In various positions, Joost and Pieter have developed a clear vision of compliance and client acceptance - from the perspective of the institution, but also from the perspective of the regulator and the client. As experts, Joost and Pieter are regularly approached by the notarial profession, the legal profession and tax specialists to help think about a variety of compliance issues.
