And all have extensive experience and detailed knowledge of the Dutch legal system – particularly commercial law.

Dutch desk – Areas of focus:

Securing claims

Schultze & Braun helps German clients secure claims against customers in the Netherlands. When, for example, a Dutch customer enters insolvency and the security interest is withdrawn and enforced against the insolvency administrator.

Company law

We advise Dutch shareholders of corporate groups with companies in Germany on matters such as corporate reorganisation and liquidation of German groups.
