Van Doorne has one of the leading litigation and insurance groups in the Netherlands, with a wide-ranging practice and particular strength in complex and international matters.
We have one of the most sizeable litigation practices in the Netherlands. The emphasis of our litigation group is on corporate litigation and arbitration, high profile insurance matters, D&O liability, professional liability, general (product) liability as well as on high profile commercial disputes. In these fields we serve a wide array of clients, varying from large corporates and family businesses, to listed companies and private equity investors.
We offer, as testified to by all international rankings, renowned experts in each area of litigation companies may be confronted with, civil as well as criminal law related. The practice has the size and breadth to successfully complete the most highly demanding engagements.
Our litigation lawyers understand business dynamics and always keep an eye on their ultimate aim; protect or maximize value for our clients. They steer away from conflict if necessary, but will leave no legal option unused if the situation calls for this. Clients of our insurance practice include most major insurance companies and brokers from the international and Dutch insurance market, including an important foothold in the London market.
