The forthcoming entry into force of the Act on Management and Supervision of Legal Entities will (among other things) increase the liability risk under Dutch law for directors and supervisory directors of semi-public institutions, such as housing associations and healthcare institutions. In addition, due to a number of other recent developments the possibilities for an efficient and expeditious judicial settlement of disputes in the Netherlands will broaden.
With this update we would like to bring the core of these developments to your attention. The following topics will be discussed:
- Bill on the Management and Supervision of Legal Entities
- Bill on Redress of Mass Damages in a Collective Action
- National Commercial Court (NCC) launched
- Expedited Procedure Court of Amsterdam
