ENFORCEMENT IN THE NETHERLANDS
MD Lawyers International Law Firm
Our Lawyers in The Netherlands are specialized in enforcing domestic or foreign rulings. It happens frequently that a Dutch debtor 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 the Netherlands. 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 the Netherlands without particular procedures of recognition. The seconds (for example from Russia, USA, Canada, China, Japan) need an exequatur procedure to have the judgement fully recognized in The Netherlands. The exequatur is important in order to verify that those rullings are not contraries to the Dutch Law. We provide a methodological approach to the enforcement of foreign rullings in The Netherlands, concerning unpaid invoices, corporate obligations or alimony obligations.
A crucial role in the enforcement is played by the Bailiff, which has all the powers according by the law to block the bank accounts of the debtor, collect the amounts, execute the rulling on real estates and on other goods belonging to the debtor.
Our Law Firm in The Netherlands can provide the enforcement services in the whole Dutch territory thanking to the netwok we built during the years.
We look forward to cooperate with you.
