International business to business contracting

International business to business contracting including direct and indirect (distribution/agency) sales contracts for the sale of goods and/or services, sale and/or purchase of companies (assets and/or shares) and/or strategic alliances, tax driven structures.

Education

Madelon completed her study English law at “the College of Law” and was admitted to the role of solicitors in 1994. Thereafter, Madelon studied the law of the Netherlands and became one of the first persons to be admitted as “advocaat” based on her English title and became at that point dually qualified.

Thereafter Madelon completed a number of courses such as the Grotius Computer law.

Lawyer and Solicitor at LVH

As from 1 October 2019.

Work experience

Madelon started as ‘Solicitor’ in London and thereafter “advocaat” with a medium size Rotterdam law firm and focussed primarily on the Anglo-Saxon practice.

During her time with the law firm in Rotterdam, she plays a pivotal role in the international alliance that the law firm had joined.

After a number of years of being external counsel, she was approached by one of her clients to set up a legal department of a joint-venture company that her client had just formed. She took the challenge and developed a fully grown legal department with 3 other lawyers.

A number of years later, Madelon became a devoted mother and decided to take a number of years out to raise her son.

Some years later she worked as interim legal counsel for a number of medium to large companies. During this time she learnt a lot about how companies prioritize and focus and she enjoyed being able to provide legal advice taking into consideration these aspects. Madelon is a problem solver and did what she could, within the legal parameters, to provide practical legal advice to support the business of the company.

Interim solutions for companies

Madelon noticed that there is an increasing amount of “advocaten” being seconded for specific projects to their clients. Based on Madelon’s background and experience, LVH and Madelon decided to join forces and offer this very same service to LVH clients.

Expertise

International commercial (business to business) contracting in the broadest sense, project based legal support with clients of LVH.

Qualities

Madelon focusses primarily on (international) legal support with LVH clients that have legal issues that cannot be handled internally due to size and complexity.

Madelon is a practical, commercial, assertive and creative person and loves finding solutions. Madelon is open in her communication, optimistic, out of the box thinker and has a truly English sense of humor.

Personal characteristics

Madelon is an extravert and sociable communicator with a bubbly character. She thinks in solutions and not problems and is very upright and honest.

Practical legal tips on the applicability of General Terms and Conditions of Trade

Are you sometimes confronted with the situation where your business enterprise has contracted with another business and your business enterprise has sent an offer to the other party you’re your General Terms and Conditions and the other party has accepted your order by return stating that that their General Terms and Conditions apply? The question is which General Terms and Conditions apply here. This is what is called a “battle of forms”.

Pratical Legal Corona Tips: How can your business enterprise conduct its formal meetings that require physical presence by law or deed?

Under the Dutch Civil Code (DCC), there are many requirements on how to convene certain general meetings of business enterprises. The one that causes the biggest obstacle is the fact that the DCC requires in some instances that such general meetings require the physical presence of the parties concerned. And this may not be possible or practicable during the period of the “intelligent” lock-down imposed by the Dutch Government.  

Corona SME helpdesk (for non-Dutch enterprises)

The coronavirus cannot be ignored and many countries are taking huge measures that impact each and everyone of us. It affects how we do business, and affects how we have done business in the past. For that reason LVH Advocaten have launched a special Corona legal support desk for non-Dutch enterprises to help you through these difficult times. The Dutch government has implemented many measures that restrict business and force us to redefine our parameters. The Dutch government has also shown that it is there to help and to make the transition a little less painful.

Terminating an Agency agreement by the Principal

An agency agreement (“Agency Agreement”) may be terminated with or without cause and below you will find a practicable explanation on which steps need to be considered. Please note that terminating an Agency Agreement may be done through the Cantonal Courts or by taking extra-judicial steps as set out in article 6:265 of the DCC. The EC directive (86/653/EEG) is implemented in the Netherlands in articles 7:428 to 7:455 of the Dutch Civil Code (“DCC”), which is mostly compulsory law, which means that deviation by agreement is generally not possible and that these provisions are overriding. This article will only address the situation where the Principal terminates or rescinds the Agency Agreement. My next article will address the situation of the Agent.

TRADE SECRETS ACT: Good news for enterprises!

As you all know the introduction of the Data Protection Regulation (2016/679 with effect on 25th May 2018 had a substantial impact on enterprises on all levels, and received a lot of attention. Shortly after, another act was implemented in the Netherlands which also puts the trade secrets of organization on the map and gives enterprises a competitive advantage.
