business law / contract law / intellectual property law / insolvency law
Businesses which do business abroad are subject to the law of another country. In international business, in the event of a dispute with your contracting party, the question often arises as to which law applies and which court is competent to rule on this matter. Sometimes this is provided for in the contract, but that is not always the case. If, for example, you as a Dutch business would like to conclude a contract with a French business, it is important to consider the question of which law should be declared applicable. Will it be French law or Dutch law? It is also important to settle whether the Dutch court or the French court is competent to have jurisdiction in disputes. In terms of costs, it makes quite a difference if proceedings have to be conducted abroad or in the Netherlands.
The specialists from Meulenkamp Advocaten assist businesses from the Netherlands and abroad in a variety of international issues.
