Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Every entrepreneur has to deal with it from time to time: disputes that are not easily resolved. In some cases, these disputes can have a considerably negative impact on your business and can even threaten its continued existence. Sometimes, in such cases, it is necessary to resort to the courts or another dispute resolution body.
For those cases, we have a team of experienced lawyers who are specialised in conducting proceedings in all kinds of cases. Whether it is proceedings on commercial contracts, disputes within companies, directors’ liability, intellectual property issues, employment matters, divorces, property-related matters, insolvency matters or competition law disputes: we are there for you.
We represent our national and international clients in proceedings at subdistrict courts, district courts, courts of appeal, the Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC), the Enterprise Chamber of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal and even the Supreme Court, the highest civil court in the Netherlands. We also represent our clients in all kinds of arbitration cases, including cases before the Netherlands Arbitration Institute (NAI) and the Dutch Construction Arbitration Council.
Our litigation team includes supreme court lawyers, deputy judges at the Court of Appeal Amsterdam, NAI arbitrators and university lecturers.
We always do this with your interests in mind and provide a clear estimate of the costs, the course and the duration of the process in advance. If a settlement is in your best interest, we negotiate the best terms for you. Besides litigation, negotiation is in our blood. In this context, we also have experienced and accredited mediators in various fields of law at our disposal, if necessary.
