Enforcement Lawyers in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
MD Lawyers International Law Firm | Advocaten
Our Lawyers in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) are specialized in enforcing domestic or foreign rulings. It happens frequently that a debtor located in Amsterdam is part of a court trial in another European country. In the mayority of the cases the Dutch debtor does not have assets in the foreign country and it is necessary to enforce the foreign ruling in his own city, Amsterdam. Our Law Firm enforces domestic rulings, foreign rulings, european orders of payment or foreign orders of payment.
There is an important difference in the enforcement between european rulings and non european ones. The firsts can be enforced easily in Amsterdam without particular procedures of recognition, according to the Regulation (EU) n.1215/2012, known also as Regulation Bruxelles I bis. The seconds (for example from Russia, USA, Canada, China, Japan) need an exequatur procedure to have the judgement fully recognized. The exequatur is important in order to verify that those rulings are not contraries to the Dutch Law. We provide a methodological approach to the enforcement of foreign rullings in Amsterdam, concerning unpaid invoices, corporate obligations or alimony obligations.
A crucial role in the enforcement is played by the local Bailiff, which has all the powers according by the law to block the bank accounts of the debtor, collect the amounts, enforce the ruling on real estates and on other goods belonging to the debtor.
Our Lawyers in Amsterdam can provide the enforcement services in the whole Dutch territory thanking to the netwok we built during the years and to the cooperation with the best bailiffs on the territory.
We look forward to cooperate with you.
