DISPUTE RESOLUTION: COMMERCIAL LITIGATION (TIER3)
Wijn & Stael Advocaten N.V. has a burgeoning standing in the market; the result of a versatile and talented group of litigators instructed in some high-profile, international matters with notable strength in financial issues. With ‘unrivalled energy and focus’ Koen Rutten is leading the advice to 85 institutional investors as shareholders in Steinhoff in a €700m damages claim. Rutten co-leads the practice alongside Noor Zetteler and head of Supreme Court litigation Thijs van Zanten.

Testimonials van onze cliënten:
'We have worked with Thijs van Zanten and his team on high-profile litigation at the Dutch Supreme Court. Thijs is a well-established Supreme Court lawyer, with a practical approach. Together with Ida Lintel he delivers output within the desired time frame.'

'Koen Rutten is an excellent lawyer and a pleasure to work with.'

'Excellent business acumen, to-the-point, knowledgable about the eco-system (who is who) on a case, not only pure legal focus. Koen Rutten is down-to-earth; swift; transparent; excellent soft skills; eye for details; a fantastic human being on top of being a great lawyer. One of the best litigation lawyers we use in our cases.'

'Team is really on top of things. In my case the team has to work together with other lawyers and automatically takes the lead in that process, which helps as they support you as client . Very much involved. Understand the issue and position I am in as client and act accordingly. And when on a joint assignment with other law firms, it is good to see they take the lead in drafting and court processes.'

'They are specialised in liability of the auditor. Good cooperation with the client and a great team of capable people.'

'Collaborative team that trust each other and get the best sum out of the parts. Koen has unrivalled energy and focus, leaves no stone unturned, is imaginative and open-minded.'

'Wijn & Stael is a practice that can be characterised as very strong in technical knowledge. They form teams on a subject matter basis, being capable of combining the best experts needed. Within the team all members are subordinate to the ultimate goal. Towards the client, Wijn & Stael continues to be realistic. They strive for the best result, but never forget the clients perspective. In doing so they often challenge the client on their requests, they will not litigate just for the sake of it.'

'The individuals within Wijn & Stael know their qualities. Koen Rutten qualifies as a pragmatic, very knowledgeable partner who is able to steer his client continuously in the right direction. He easily combines the detail of a file with the often so much needed overview. The combination of Koen with Willem Jan van Andel creates a winning team, with Mr Van Andel adding close to a lifetime of experience.'
