Litigation law

Litigation lawyer

Being right is one thing, but to prevail in a legal dispute, a skilled litigation lawyer can make all the difference.

Strictly Partial

Proceedings may become inevitable when parties have a dispute they cannot resolve together. These proceedings can take place in court or at an arbitration institute. They could involve an interim injunction or a substantive procedure. Although a lawyer isn’t mandatory for all procedures, in many situations, the support of an experienced litigation lawyer is indispensable. They are familiar with the legal rules. The litigation lawyer is strictly partial, focusing solely on the interests of their client. HAUT Legal possesses this expertise in-house.

Which Authority?

The litigation lawyer knows where to initiate the case and which judge is appropriate. Most civil disputes are handled by the regular court. Certain procedures must go to the Magistrates’ Court, such as claims below €25,000, rental disputes, and employment disagreements. If time is of the essence, the presiding judge is the right route. They assess the urgency, the interests of both parties, and the potential outcome of the main procedure. The Enterprise Chamber is a business law-specialised section of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal and handles a wide range of business law disputes. For international business conflicts, arbitration is often the preferred method. The litigation lawyers at HAUT Legal have extensive experience in this area.

Before the Procedure

Once the case has started in court, the litigation lawyer’s experience is crucial in determining how to achieve the best outcome. Is an on-site inspection necessary? Should a witness be interviewed in the meantime? Is appealing an interim judgment an option? If faced with a disappointing final judgment, a decision must be made on whether an appeal might lead to a better outcome. For appeals to the Supreme Court, we collaborate with specialist appeal lawyers.

HAUT Legal’s seasoned litigation lawyers assist you in strategy determination. Litigation is a unique skill. It goes beyond mere legal rules. We understand our client, immerse ourselves in their specific business, and know the facts. An experienced lawyer can be the difference between losing or winning a case. 

Drafting the Right Legal Documents

The lawyer knows how to formulate claims in the designated legal documents. They determine on which grounds claims are made, which statutory articles are relevant, which party must provide which evidence, what can and cannot be claimed. On the defendant’s side, they know how to present the defence and if a counterclaim can be submitted.

Applying for an Interim Injunction

Those seeking a court judgment through a civil procedure are often tied up for months, if not years. In urgent cases, a swift solution is needed. Think, for example, of preventing an employee strike or evicting a tenant due to rent arrears. In such cases, an interim injunction can offer a solution.
