Our Dutch corporate lawyers in the Netherlands will help you set up a company or advise you on, for example, a shareholder agreement. You can also contact our lawyers for setting up a joint venture, a merger or a company takeover. Much of our advisory work also concerns the liability of directors, the position of a work council, supervisory board or the way in which shareholders can influence the ‘ins and outs’ of a company.

When a dispute arises between shareholders it is often about an alleged improper performance of duties or a discussion about the interpretation of a shareholder agreement. If the company suffers damage as a result of the actions of a director or shareholder, we can represent your interests before a civil court or in an inquiry procedure before the Enterprise Chamber in Amsterdam. Together with you, we determine the strategy and we can act directly on your behalf.
