What the team is known for

Simmons & Simmons's office in Amsterdam is a strong option for clients facing cross-border challenges. Offering financial, transactional and various contentious capabilities, the team coordinates efficiently with other offices across the firm's network to deliver outbound and inbound mandates, with a close connection to the firm's London headquarters. The international network is a key attraction for the firm, and the Dutch practice also works closely with colleagues across Europe, Asia and the Middle East, as well as joining forces with local law firms outside its home jurisdictions to serve clients' international demands.

The team is especially skilled in cross-border financing, with particular expertise in regulatory banking law, as well as securitisation and debt matters. It routinely handles multi-jurisdictional deals, assisting a varied base of multinational and international banks and other financial services. International clients facing cross-border transactions will benefit from the team's ability to advise on Dutch aspects of many areas of law, and it is especially noted for strengths in mid-market value M&A, IP and employment law issues.
