Litigation

Litigation is not a goal in itself for our lawyers. If you, as a businessman, have an issue with a business client for instance, we will first see if we can find an efficient solution that works for you, on the basis of information and a thorough analysis of the facts.  If it is clear that action is needed, we will provide an insight into the opportunities and risks of legal proceedings. Factors that play a role include the length of such proceedings, the cost and benefits.

We have a lot of litigation experience. Among other things, we take action with regard to disputes about acquisitions, (imminent) broken-off negotiations, disputes about whether an agreement was formed, about the applicability of general terms and conditions, disputes between shareholders, directors and/or partners and disputes about business takeovers.

During proceedings, you are assisted by a team of specialist lawyers, consisting of partners and members of staff with the appropriate level of experience. We guarantee the speed and experience required for your business interests. This may involve an action on the merits and/or preliminary relief proceedings, attachments and enforcing judgements, in brief: all measures needed to look after your interests.
