Arbitration

Our firm has handled a great number of domestic and international arbitrations, including ICC. Arbitrations are either conducted on an ad hoc basic, or are administered by arbitral institutions. The domestic arbitrations included cases administered by the Netherlands Arbitration Institute (NAI), Tamara Foundation, UNUM Arbitration and the Dutch Forwarders Association FENEX. Members of our firm have acted as an arbitrator with shipbuilding contracts, sale & purchase, shipping pool agreements, time and voyage charterparties (fixing, performance and post fixture), Bills of Lading and trading of commodities (wet and dry).

We are frequently instructed by other international lawfirms to represent their clients when there is a Dutch angle to the case involved. Our experience extends to designing arbitration, and ADR clauses, advising on the optimal conflict management-strategy, advising on and conducting proceedings to set aside arbitral awards and for obtaining leave to enforce a foreign arbitral award. Our firm maintains a database of relevant know-how, both substantive and procedural. Additionally, our practice is experienced in handling multi-jurisdictional cases.
