What the team is known for

AKD has quickly developed into a distinguished Benelux-wide firm. The Netherlands team is praised for working seamlessly with the firm's offices in Belgium and Luxembourg, both of which have seen significant growth in recent years, as well as with other leading firms from other jurisdictions to execute cross-border matters. It has strong experience acting as co-counsel on inbound matters in the Netherlands, with a precise knowledge of the local market, as well as advising various clients as lead counsel on outbound matters.

The team offers notable transactional capabilities, maintaining an active cross-border M&A practice. It is particularly adept at providing support on mid-market deals, which have recently involved the USA and Asia. Equally the firm has one of the leading practices for real estate, and members of the team have a strong track record in handling multi-jurisdictional projects in that area, dealing with pan-European property portfolios. Other areas of note include cross-border contentious matters, such as bankruptcy disputes and IP mandates.


Considered by sources to handle cross-border matters well and used as "the lead counsel managing and reviewing other firms' work."

A foreign client appreciates that "throughout their work, AKD have helped us understand the specifics of Dutch law with ease and patience necessary" on cross-border transactions.
