This book offers the ideal way for a foreign lawyer to get in touch with litigation practice and procedure in the Netherlands. Whether a lawyer comes to Dutch litigation in the rmal course of business, or whether the brief and inexpensive kort geding (preliminary relief proceedings) is the main attraction, this concise guide provides a solid understanding of the practical implications of Dutch litigation. This is the indispensable tool for meaningful exchanges with your Dutch litigation counsel, prior or during any lawsuit. The authors are seasoned practitioners, experienced in representing international clients in the Dutch legal arena. Expertly they cover the three types of dispute resolution practiced under Dutch law: litigation in the civil courts, including corporate litigation in the Enterprise Court, as well as recent changes to the Code of Civil Procedure and discussion of likely trends arising from new and pending legislative proposals; arbitration, including discussion of mediation and expert determination; and administrative litigation, including admissibility, administrative review, jurisdiction, preliminary relief, and judicial review in the civil courts.
