For entrepreneurs with business partners in the Netherlands, certain special features should be taken into account when negotiating or drafting contracts under Dutch law. For example, when doing business with Dutch parties, it should be borne in mind that binding agreements can already arise during negotiations and before the actual contract is signed. Furthermore, possible language barriers and a different business culture can lead to misunderstandings during contract negotiations in the Netherlands. This applies regardless of whether it is a new cooperation or a settlement agreement to settle a dispute.
