Corporate Law

Yspeert’s corporate lawyers have in-depth experience in advising and litigating in the area of Dutch corporate law. Our know-how in this area of law is extensive which allows us to guide you through the High-Stakes World of Mergers, Company acquisitions and takeovers. Our corporate lawyers excel as “deal makers” who realise that although the objectives of parties may be the same, their interest is often a very different one.

Our motto is: Prevention is better than cure. Our corporate lawyers can help you draw up all necessary corporate documentation customised to your particular needs.

Our experts provide Dutch and international clients with clear, imaginative and practical advice on all matters of Dutch corporate law, including:

  • Mergers and acquisitions;
  • Joint ventures and partnering arrangements;
  • Restructuring and reorganisations;
  • Venture capital and other corporate financing transactions;
  • Management buyouts;
  • Takeovers;
  • Regulatory issues, such as capital markets regulations;

We are also more than happy to assist you with any company law issues such as:

  • Issues regarding the convening of a general meeting of shareholders;
  • Assisting with the set up and structure of your company;
  • Assessment of internal decision-making processes;
  • Corporate governance;
  • Shareholder agreements and shareholder disputes;
  • Corporate liability.

In our complex business world, directors are more and more bound by corporate governance obligations. If a managing director or the board of management incur debts that they know cannot be paid, or they take so much money from the firm that debtors can no longer be paid, the managing director himself can be (personally) held liable for those debts. The expertise of our interdisciplinary team has a particular strength in legal proceedings relating to fraudulent conveyance issues and directors’ liability. In times of distress, we provide the expert advice our clients need in order to prevent or limit liability.
