Netherlands Commercial Court’s (NCC) inaugural court hearing

Floor Eikelboom / 18 feb 2019

After much anticipation within the Dutch legal community, the Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC) held its inaugural court hearing on 18 February 2019. Fittingly for a litigation boutique that strives to be at the forefront of legal developments, bureau Brandeis was there. Floor Eikelboom defended his client’s interest.

The NCC is part of the Dutch judiciary, but its proceedings and judgments are in English. By marrying the ease of using the English language to the Dutch judiciary’s tradition of efficiency, reliability, transparency and low cost, it aims to become a prominent forum for international business litigation.

The concerned hearing was held only days after the – interlocutory – proceedings were commenced, demonstrating that NCC proceedings can resolve disputes swiftly, indeed.
