ADVOCURA has a strong track record in litigation. We have focus on corporate and commercial litigation, class actions, professional liability and disciplinary proceedings. We guide our clients through complex employment law matters.
ADVOCURA assists in litigating (international) matters before various Dutch tribunals as well as in international arbitrations.
By the very nature of legal issues, matters can be sensitive and urgent. In response, we ensure a prompt and decisive approach, providing strategic advice.
With the introduction of the Mass claims settlement act (Wet Afwikkeling Massaschade in Collectieve Actie; “WAMCA”), litigation in the Netherlands has become even more attractive. Under the WAMCA it is possible to immediately claim compensation in addition to a declaratory decision. Representative organizations can claim damages for an entire class of claimants. Depending on where the claimant is based, an opt-out or opt-in system applies.
International business disputes can be brought before the Netherlands Commercial Court (“NCC”), a specialized division of the Amsterdam District Court and the Amsterdam Court of Appeal. The NCC aims to answer the need of the international business community for specialized, flexible and fast court proceedings in English, at moderate costs.
ADVOCURA will gladly assist you in any kind of these proceedings. Working closely with specialists in our network, ADVOCURA is able to put together a team specifically tailored to your case. In this way, we can not only professionally handle complex cases, but we are also able to bring comprehensive cases to a successful conclusion. We don’t solely focus on possible actions in our own jurisdiction, but because of this network of specialists we are able to address your needs on a global level, with the assistance of international co-counsel if necessary. In the same way, ADVOCURA is often called upon by other law firms to act as co-counsel in complex cases. In addition we regularly provide litigation advice and – mainly at the request of insurers – second opinions.
