Corporate & Financial Litigation at Wijn & Stael
Any company may face a situation where the interests and objectives of the various stakeholders, such as management, supervisory board and shareholders, no longer align. Or that a joint strategy cannot be determined or implemented. If this leads to a conflict, legal assistance is often indispensable. In such cases, you can turn to the Corporate & Financial Litigation attorneys of Wijn & Stael.

Legal Expertise in Corporate Disputes
Our attorneys at the Corporate & Financial Litigation department have extensive knowledge and experience in takeover disputes, shareholder disputes, and liability of directors and regulators. They excel in complex domestic and cross-border cases, take the time to understand your business and try to avoid litigation, where possible.
