Corporate Law

Entrepreneurship is in our DNA

We believe that corporate law facilitates business practice, rather than the reverse. We focus on opportunities rather than impossibilities. Entrepreneurship is in our DNA. We are not only legal specialists, but also appreciate the impact that a transaction, restructuring or legal dispute may have on a business owner. Our advice therefore also takes the context into account.

We are specialists in the fields of mergers and acquisitions (M&A), venture capital and private equity transactions, and various types of strategic alliances, such as joint ventures. In addition, we have lawyers who are intensively involved in corporate litigation. Furthermore we advise you on corporate governance and commercial contracts.

Corporate Litigation

Litigation is sometimes unavoidable to solve a business conflict. Within our corporate law practice group we therefore litigate a wide range of disputes, focusing primarily on corporate litigation and disputes regarding compliance with contracts, such as court and arbitration proceedings on acquisition disputes, officers’ and directors’ liability, and disputes within companies or partnerships. We do so for Dutch and international companies and their stakeholders, such as shareholders, managing directors and supervisory directors. We regularly litigate before the Dutch courts, the Enterprise Court of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal and the Netherlands Arbitration Institute (NAI). If necessary, we levy attachment, institute preliminary relief proceedings or file appeals. We therefore do not shy away from confrontation and always focus on the best possible outcome. But we always start by investigating whether a settlement might be better. Not only before, but also during legal action. Litigation is only a means, not an end in itself.

  • Shareholder and cooperation disputes
  • Arbitration proceedings before the NAI
  • Proceedings before the Enterprise Court
