Lawyer Rankings

Netherlands > Dispute resolution: Commercial litigation

The dispute resolution team at Van Doorne is instructed across the spectrum of litigation work, and is particularly recommended for class actions, shareholder disputes and corporate litigation, representing clients in some of the market’s largest cases. Additionally, the firm is frequently instructed in professional liability cases, with a team led by dispute resolution practice co-head Walter Hendriksen receiving instructions from law firms and auditors, as well as maintaining a strong presence in director’s and officer’s liability matters. Hendriksen’s fellow practice head Jasper Leedekerken is involved in a broader range of work, with mass litigation and securities disputes being two stand-out areas. Corporate litigation specialist Sjoerd Kamerbeek is also recommended.

Netherlands > Dispute resolution: arbitration

Van Doorne‘s arbitration team was strengthened by the recent arrival of associate Fleur Potter and the ‘sharp and pragmatic‘ Rogier Schellaars from Simmons & Simmons; the latter is now jointly heading the practice with Bas van Zelst. Schellaars and van Zelst have considerable experience arbitrating before both the ICC and NAI, making them ‘a very strong team to handle international arbitration cases‘. In recent work, the group represented Caratube International Oil in highly contentious enforcement proceedings regarding an ICSID Award against the Republic of Kazakhstan and the National Bank of Kazakhstan. Jasper Leedekerken is another key contact.
