The last decade has brought an increased focus on shareholder’ rights, shareholders powers and shareholder engagement. There have also been significant developments in corporate governance and a continuously growing interest by foreign investors (such as hedge funds) in Dutch companies.
Our corporate litigators have been at the forefront of these trends and have handled a number of complex landmark cases. Our practice is among the largest and most active in this field and our team members are widely recognised for their significant expertise and experience in bringing challenging cases to a positive outcome.
Our practice encompasses:
shareholders’ and joint-venture related disputes
disputes relating to mergers and acquisitions
inquiry proceedings before the Enterprise Chamber
Our corporate litigators help clients to reduce their exposure to litigation through risk management and properly informed decisions on long-term strategic issues. We believe it to be crucial for a corporate litigator to have a sound understanding of the mechanisms of a transaction and we see it as an advantage that most of our corporate litigators have extensive experience as corporate lawyers as well.
Working in a truly international environment, our litigators have a keen sense of the cultural and legal differences between the markets in which we are active.
