Pre- and Post-Award Attachment – Tried and Tested Enforcement through the Netherlands

Derains & Gharavi will be hosting the breakfast seminar “Pre- and Post-Award Attachment – Tried and Tested Enforcement through the Netherlands” on Wednesday 3 April 2019 from 8:30 am until 10:30 am (Centre Etoile Saint Honoré, 21-25, rue Balzac, 75008 Paris, Salon Véga), during the Paris Arbitration Week (PAW).

The Netherlands plays a central role in the corporate structuring and tax planning of internationally active corporates. The jurisdiction is also popular with several states for the purposes of sovereign wealth management. An interesting asset position, combined with the liberal Dutch system of leave for attachment and enforcement, make the Netherlands an interesting jurisdiction to obtain security for claims prior to and during arbitrations, and to enforce arbitral awards once the arbitral proceedings are completed.

During this breakfast seminar we will uncover the legal avenues available to litigants to secure their claims and to enforce arbitral awards on assets located in and structured through the Netherlands. Together with guest speaker, Gerard Meijer (professor Erasmus University Rotterdam and admitted to practice in Amsterdam), Derains & Gharavi’s Melanie van Leeuwen and Sophia von Dewall (admitted to practice in Amsterdam and Paris) will discuss a number of recent cases, in which generous security was obtained and awards were successfully enforced in the Netherlands.
