Testimonials

Visser Schaap & Kreijger is a leading firm in the Netherlands in the field of soft IP and Media. Dirk Visser is the best copyright lawyer where litigation before the Dutch Courts and also the CJEU is concerned. Very sharp, quick on his feet, very efficient, knows everybody, and is involved in all relevant developments where litigation regarding online copyright infringement. Working together with Dirk Visser and the firm’s very bright and dedicated associates are very pleasant.

My firm has been working with VSK for several years now. The last twelve months we have worked with one of the partners, Jacqueline Schaap, and her team in three cases. The cases concerned unlawful media publications/press releases. They are very professional and know what they are doing.

Jacqueline Schaap is an absolute giant in the field of unlawful media publications. She has decades of experience to rely on and has worked for both media outlets (newspapers, television programs etc.) and individuals who were the subject of a media publication. As such she is familiar with both sides of the equation and knows exactly how to operate in media cases where everything is about the delicate balancing exercise between freedom of the press on the one hand and respect for privacy on the other hand. Due to their very nature most media cases have ridiculously short deadlines. I was very impressed by Jacqueline’s capacity to deliver excellent and spot on argumentation under these rather extreme circumstances.

Very thorough and accessible team, with a profound knowledge of relevant (case) law in the relevant fields (media, entertainment, copyright, trade marks, privacy).
