Our Dutch lawyers in the Netherlands act for companies in business disputes. We have been doing so for many years and our lawyers have an excellent knowledge of procedural law. When a dispute arises with a trading party or with another shareholder, it is important to act quickly. This usually prevents more damage and brings a solution closer. Before initiating proceedings or preparing a defence, we analyse the dispute and work with you to find the quickest and best solution. When a strong negotiation is likely, our Dutch litigation lawyers in the Netherlands will take that route. If that does not work for our client, we will litigate where necessary.

If it is important to strengthen your recovery position at an early stage and so we will advise you on a prejudgment attachment. This will attach the other party’s assets and (after the proceedings have been conducted) render them liable to be recovered. Initiating proceedings in the civil courts is done with a writ of summons and the response to this is called a statement of defence. Many paths can be taken in proceedings, such as a witness examination or obtaining advice from an expert. Our litigation lawyers quickly get to the heart of the matter and advise on the steps to be taken. Our Dutch attorneys in the Netherlands are known for their sharp focus on the substance.
