Eerste Kamer stemt in met wetsvoorstel Netherlands Commercial Court.

Blogs 17 December 2018
In maart dit jaar berichtten wij op onze website over de oprichting van de Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC). De Tweede Kamer had op dat moment net ingestemd het wetvoorstel dat Engelstalige rechtspraak mogelijk maakt. Vorige week, op 11 december 2018, heeft ook de Eerste Kamer ingestemd met dat wetsvoorstel. De oprichting van de NCC is hiermee een feit.

Met het wetsvoorstel zal er binnen de bestaande handelskamers een bijzondere (internationale) kamer worden opgericht bij de rechtbank Amsterdam (Netherlands Commercial Court) en het gerechtshof Amsterdam (Netherlands Commercial Court of Appeal; NCCA). De NCC richt zich primair op de beslechting van grote, complexe internationale handelsgeschillen en kenmerkt zich – net als arbitrage – door vrijwilligheid. Engels is de voertaal, maar het Nederlandse procesrecht geldt als uitgangspunt.

BASE houdt de ontwikkelingen op het gebied van de NCC al jaren nauwlettend in de gaten. Eerdere artikelen treft u hieronder aan:

Artikel maart 2018 
Artikel augustus 2017 
Artikel januari 2016 

De griffierechten zullen naar verwachting €15.000 bedragen in eerste aanleg (NCC) en €20.000 in hoger beroep (NNCA). Het idee achter deze hogere griffierechten is dat de procedures bij de NCC zoveel mogelijk kostendekkend moeten zijn. De verwachting is dat de NCC per 1 januari 2019 van start zal gaan.

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.
