Publius Ovidius Naso (43 BC – 17 AD) – Progenitor



Publius Ovidius Naso, also known as Ovid, was a Roman poet in the glory days of the Roman Empire. He studied literature, eloquence and law and, after a short career as a lawyer, specialised in poetry. Please refer to for more information about the poet Ovidius.

The poet Ovidius was an artist in language and excelled in describing situations and emotions. For instance, Ovidius was the first to define the state in which we have no overview due to too many details, “To not see the forest for the trees” or “Frondem in silva non cernere”.

When confronted with a legal issue, it is often easy to miss the big picture, as clients understandably tend to focus on other issues, such as day-to-day business. The lawyers of Ovidius have a clear and a pragmatic approach that allows clients to concentrate on their objectives, leaving the details to the lawyers. Then clients can see the forest for the trees.
