Our corporate lawyers are well versed in domestic and cross-border transactions. We have considerable experience with assisting in share transfers, controlled auctions, asset transfers and collaborative arrangements between companies.
We perform all tasks as required, from due diligence and conducting the negotiations to drawing up the transaction and financing documentation. Where necessary we draw on other areas of expertise within our firm, such as our specialists in employment law, employee participation, pensions and insurance. We also work with tax consultants who have specific expertise in such transactions, including in an international context.
A wide range of notable cases
Our Corporate Law team works for a broad spectrum of clients. As a result, we have been involved in a wide range of notable cases, such as restructuring a listed fund, the takeover of a life insurance company and the development by a major bank of a new financial product.
Resolving disputes in corporate law
In addition to advice, litigation is part of our core business. We have substantial experience in dispute resolution in corporate law. For example, we represent clients in issues concerning directors’ liability. We also handle disputes following takeovers and aborted negotiations, and cases relating to the buyout or expulsion of shareholders that come before the Netherlands Enterprise Court at the Amsterdam Court of Appeal. We have been involved in high-profile, challenging cases such as a claim for millions of euros against a major law firm, a lawsuit against an international trust company concerning directors’ liability and a shareholders’ dispute involving a recycling group.
A particular area of expertise for our Corporate Law practice is sports law. Elite professional sport is big business; there is often a great deal at stake in terms of money and reputations. Our lawyers are specialised in the various legal disciplines that play a role in sports law.
