(Happy) New Year - New Court!

The 1st of January 2019 marked the coming into being of the Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC). After intensive discussions the establishment of the NCC was proved by the Dutch Senate (Tweede Kamer) on 11 December 2018. We have reported on the most important parliamentary procedures in previous posts. As expected the court and its staff are ready to begin their work, supported by a dedicated website – there is even a new promotional video – a Twitter, and a LinkedIn account. Information at the website of the judiciary in Dutch is available here and in English here.

The NCC and other similar courts will be on focus in a special issue of the Erasmus Law Review and a book dedicated to the international business courts, which will be published this year. Georgia Antonopoulou, Alexandre Biard and Erlis Themeli will contribute to these publications, while Xandra Kramer will be one of the editors (in collaboration with Advisory Board member John Sorabji).

With this first news item, we would like to wish all of our readers, friends, and colleagues an inspiring and happy 2019!
