Litigation at Wijn & Stael
Disputes are an inevitable challenge that any business entity may face. They can crop up with stakeholders, such as board directors, shareholders, or supervisory directors, but also with market participants, such as suppliers, auditors, or bankruptcy trustees. However, a business may also find itself locked in a financial dispute with a bank, financial services provider, or regulator. In all such cases, having expert legal counsel is key to a successful outcome. Wijn & Stael litigation attorneys are specialized in all aspects of corporate, commercial, and financial litigation and can provide you with the representation you need.

Legal Expertise in Corporate Disputes
Our litigation attorneys possess extensive knowledge and experience in disputes involving banking institutions, shareholders, liability of directors, regulators, and professionals such as auditors and attorneys, among others. They have an excellent track record in complex domestic and cross-border cases. In addition to routinely representing trustees and directors in bankruptcy cases, and litigating supply chain and breach of contract disputes, they have significant experience in litigating fraud claims and matters involving Customer Due Diligence (CDD).

Strategic Approach and Quantitative Data Analyses
Our attorneys differentiate themselves through their strategic approach to each case. They will evaluate the merits of your case and the probability of success on trial based on quantitative data and feasibility analyses. They will then help you decide on the best course of action for your situation, whether that be litigation, mediation, or other alternative methods of dispute resolution. If pursuing litigation turns out to be the best option for you, they will represent you vigorously before the civil court, in preliminary injunctions, before the Auditor’s Office, or in inquiry proceedings before the Netherlands Commercial Court.

Auditors (Disciplinary) Law
Our team routinely litigates matters involving auditors (disciplinary) law and financial statement audits before the Auditor’s Office, the Dutch Trade and Industry Appeals Tribunal (CBb) and the civil court. We also assist in disciplinary proceedings against auditors and related forensic accounting and person-centered investigations.
