Corporate Litigation

The attorneys in the Corporate Litigation practice group are specialists. They have gained broad-ranging experience dealing with disputes between, for example, shareholders, supervisory boards and other corporate bodies. There are several ways to force a breakthrough in such cases. The Enterprise Section of the Amsterdam Court and preliminary relief judges often play a crucial role in that respect. The practice group will help you to achieve your goals - with traditional means, but also by more innovative means such as arbitration and mediation.
