BASE Advocaten - The Litigation Firm

BASE advocaat Joris Arts gastspreker bij Jonge Balie Rotterdam

Nieuws 28 September 2016
Dinsdag 27 september gaf BASE advocaat Joris Arts, samen met RedBreast-directeur Rein Philips, een gastlezing aan leden van de Jonge Balie Rotterdam. Tijdens deze lezing stond het relatief nieuwe fenomeen "Third Party Litigation Funding" centraal.

Third Party Litigation Funding

In Nederland komt het in toenemende mate voor dat een derde partij een rechtszaak of proces financiert. Bij succes in de betreffende rechtszaak of in het betreffende proces verdient de derde partij, de financier, zijn investering met rendement terug. In de Verenigde Staten, het Verenigd Koninkrijk en in Duitsland komt het al langer voor dat via (o.m.) fondsen financiering voor rechtszaken wordt aangevraagd, maar nu doet het fenomeen van procesfinanciering door derden ook zijn intrede in Nederland.

Bij third party litigation funding zijn er voor zowel de advocaat als de investeerder belangrijke aspecten waar rekening mee gehouden moet worden. Gedurende de lezing werd daarom door BASE advocaat Joris Arts ingegaan op de juridische kant van procesfinanciering, terwijl RedBreast-directeur Rein Philips praktijkvoorbeelden toelichtte.

The Litigation firm

Solving your problem, so that you can continue with your business. That is what it is all about. It is our profession and our passion to make a business dispute or employment dispute manageable and to solve it. Sometimes we are able to do this by staying invisible by casebuilding the best file possible for and together with you behind the scenes. Being diplomatic where possible and aggressive where needed. And sometimes, full-on litigating is unavoidable. Because limits have been reached, because the other party remains unwilling to come to a constructive amicable solution, or because it may be important for your market reputation to draw a line.

Tailor-made service is key in the handling of each case. Because we are doing it together, lawyer and client. We invest in the mutual cooperation and we look in depth at your company and your market. BASE makes clear choices out of strength, because we only want to do what we are really good at and because you are simply counting on added-value. Therefor our practice focuses on Corporate & Commercial Litigation and Employment law.
