Our litigation practice focuses in particular on disputes that financial companies have with customers. This also includes class actions. We also represent financial companies. This includes complaints that are submitted to the Financial Services Complaints Tribunal (KiFiD) for review.
We assist financial companies facing enforcement measures from their supervisory authorities (DNB and AFM (The Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets)). These include both formal enforcement measures (such as instructions, a cease and desist order, or penalty decisions) and informal enforcement measures (such as warnings or breach of standards letters). We draw up opinions, act as legal representative and submit the decision of the financial authority to the administrative courts.
Where appropriate, we represent financial companies in inquiry proceedings at the Enterprise Chamber of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal.
