Opinion on Netherlands Commercial Court in financial newspaper FD

Xandra Kramer in collaboration with Eddy Bauw (professor at the Universities of Utrecht and Amsterdam) published an opinion in the Dutch financial newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad (FD) on the Netherlands Commercial Court. Providing counter arguments to an opinion published in the FD of last week, it contends that generally this initiative should be welcomed as it equips the court better to offer high quality and more tailor-made justice. The bill to establish this specialized chamber of the Amsterdam District court is currently pending in Parliament. It aims to facilitate the handling of complex, commercial and international cases, among others by allowing parties to choose English as the language of the litigation.
