Penrose resolves conflicts by way of negotiation, settlement or litigation. Or by a combination of the above. Dutch procedural law makes provision for various means of conducting legal proceedings, such as summary proceedings, bankruptcy proceedings, an attachment order, inquiry proceedings with the Netherlands Enterprise Chamber at the Amsterdam Court, a claim with the Netherlands Commercial Court or Arbitration. To achieve the best results in a dispute, we advise on the most effective options in pursuing the best litigation strategy.
Penrose makes contracts.
Penrose drafts agreements. We resolve the complex issues in Dutch contracts that are clear and exact, always drawing on the vast experience gained by us in our advisory and litigation practice. Drawing up contracts is customised work: in consultation with the contracting parties, we carefully set out all the issues that have to be agreed upon. For example regarding financial arrangements, warranties, IP-rights and what happens between the parties in the event that something goes wrong. The latter is often unforeseen, but not by us.
