Company Law and Private Equity

Work is carried out for business shareholders and management boards, private equity investors and corporate finance advisers. We provide assistance in the case of takeovers, participating interests, disinvestments and also the ongoing development of a business (collaboration arrangements, joint ventures and shareholder agreements).

Where necessary, legal proceedings are conducted with vigour, for example, in the case of those types of arrangements, director’s liability and large-scale debt collection.

Financial Law and Class Actions

This specialism involves advice and, where necessary, conducting legal proceedings for professional investors and wealthy private individuals in the case of losses involving financial products (shares, derivatives and investment-linked insurance) and property development projects. The involvement of De Gier Business Finance Law in class actions where a collective financial loss has been suffered represents a niche. Well-known cases have involved issues in relation to Fortis (Ageas) concerning the breakup of the latter and ABN Amro Bank in 2008, and the profiteering insurance policy claims against Nationale-Nederlanden and the state insurer, ASR (Waerdye).

De Gier Business Finance Law serves as the lead counsel in the case of such class actions in collaboration with the initiators of those claims, such as FortisEffect and Wakkerpolis.
