Brexit

Brexit

Even with the last minute deal entered into between the European Union and the United Kingdom in December 2020 just prior to the completion of the post-Brexit transitionary period, businesses will face a number of issues brought about by the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union. For instance, businesses may need to have in place EU registered companies and/or licenses and Dutch company structures, licensing and physical relocations to the Netherlands could be advantageous.

Our team of business law specialists can help you navigate your European structuring, licensing, supply, HR and regulatory strategies in what can be an uncertain legal landscape as well as advise you on the selling and supply arrangements needed and any additional product requirements. Brexit not only demands that in negotiations across the Channel particular attention is given to the dispute resolution clause but also that pre-existing contracts are revisited to ensure that the deal can be enforced efficiently under the new situation.

Our dispute resolution specialists are here to support on any cross border contentious or enforcement matters you may have, such as litigating in English before the Netherlands Commercial Court, enforcing judgments of the English courts in the Netherlands / EU (and enforcing judgments of the Dutch courts in the United Kingdom) through attachment or other proceedings.
