A big thank you to our clients, for their support and recommendations!

“Banning NV‘s broad practice covers advisory work (such as vertical agreements and compliance mandates), as well as international civil damages actions and cartel litigation. 

Minos van Joolingen leads the team, which has a particularly strong presence in the automotive industry; clients in this space include dealer councils of major car brands, trade associations and suppliers. van Joolingen and Sophia Wittkämper are acting for the Dutch dealer association of Opel – and all authorised dealers of these brands appointed in the Netherlands – in extensive civil law proceedings against Opel Nederland B.V. (member of the Stellantis groupe) regarding the applicability of the new Dutch Franchise Act to their relation with dealers.

The firm is also defending Fiat, Alfa-Romeo and Lancia Dealer Organisation Nederland (known as FALDON) and its 67 member dealers against allegations of ‘Dieselgate’ fraud brought by a foundation. Elsewhere, the group generates a significant amount of work related to the construction industry and it is also increasingly active in the regulatory postal sector. Martijn Jongmans rejoined the firm from AKD in June 2021.”
