Stijn FrankenNautaDutilh

NautaDutilh provides excellent end-to-end support to clients such as Dutch and international insurance companies, reinsurers, intermediaries and corporates. Jointly led by Stijn Franken and Sjoerd Meijer, the team is seen as a first port of call across a wide range of high-profile and complex insurance disputes, such as multi-party (particularly consumer-led) claims, D&O cases, product liability matters and claims relating to insurance distribution. Elsewhere, the group is trusted to provide strategic support to insurance companies and intermediaries on business-critical contractual relationships, and it also has extensive expertise in regulatory issues. Franken and senior associate Erik Poorthuis (whose practice is split between the Amsterdam and London offices) are currently defending GSK against a product liability claim, where it is alleged that the client provided inaccurate information on the side effects of one of its medications.
