Het Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC) is in aantocht. In een artikel in De Financiële Telegraaf plaatst Jeroen Kortmann enkele kanttekeningen bij de toekomstige mogelijkheid om bij handelsgeschillen snel in het Engels te procederen.

Jeroen Kortmann -partner bij Stibbe en hoogleraar aan de UvA- wijst erop dat er al veel mogelijkheden zijn om in Nederland op hoog niveau te procederen. Daarnaast kunnen bedrijven ook voor de meer vrijblijvende vorm van arbitrage kiezen, die niet gefinancierd wordt met overheidsgeld. Jeroen benadrukt ten slotte hoe belangrijk taalvaardigheid is voor de nuances in juridische procedures. "Ik hoop dat er genoeg ervaren Nederlandse rechters en advocaten zijn te vinden die zich zo lenig kunnen uitdrukken in het Engels, dat het NCC ook werkelijk de internationale aantrekkingskracht zal hebben die de initiatiefnemers beogen."

Het volledige artikel (Zuidas ziet nieuwe kluif)is te vinden in de Financiële Telegraaf van woensdag 11 januari 2017.
