We advise and litigate in a wide range of corporate law issues. Close interaction between the mergers & acquisitions practice group and the corporate litigation practice group enables us to adequately assist the client at the negotiating table and if necessary in the courtroom as well. Our lawyers are closely involved and work fast, at competitive rates.
The corporate law lawyers of Ekelmans & Meijer have earned their spurs in the area of both domestic and cross-border transactions. We have broad experience in supervising such things as, e.g., share transfers, controlled auctions, assets/liabilities transactions and corporate joint ventures. We carry out all relevant activities such as due diligence surveys, negotiations and preparing transaction and financing documentation. Where necessary we work together with the other disciplines in Ekelmans & Meijer like employment law, co-participation, pensions, insurance and real estate. In addition, we share space with tax advisers who have specific tax expertise in the area of (international) transactions. Ekelmans & Meijer represents a range of clients, such as SMEs, multinationals, investment companies and (semi-)government institutions. As a consequence we are involved in a wide variety of striking cases such as the restructuring of a share fund, the acquisition of a life insurance company and the development of a new financial product by a big bank.
Next to advising, litigation is part of Ekelmans & Meijer's core business. We have cassation appeal lawyers in house who have an excellent track record before the Netherlands Supreme Court. This means the requisite know-how and expertise is present to determine the correct litigation strategy in advance. Ekelmans & Meijer has broad experience in the area of corporate law dispute resolution. For example, we represent clients in actions on behalf of and against officers of legal entities in matters relating to director's liability. We also handle disputes ensuing from acquisitions and terminated negotiations and matters before the Enterprise Section, for example with regard to sales and expulsion of shareholders. We are involved in high-profile and challenging cases like a claim involving millions of euros against a large law firm, an action based on director's liability against an international trust company and a shareholders dispute within a recycling concern.
