The Dutch Bankruptcy Act is the oldest act in the Netherlands currently still in force. Although elements of the act have been modernised over time, the act stems from 1895. Therefore the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security initiated a consultation about a comprehensive vision on modern Dutch insolvency law.
As the largest group of dedicated insolvency lawyers in the Netherlands it was logical for NautaDutilh's Restructuring & Insolvency team to contribute by sharing its views on this interesting area of law. The ministry identified specific issues, but parties were also invited to share a broader view on insolvency law in general. NautaDutilh's response can be read here.
The response was coordinated and edited by Jochem Hummelen and Linda Tomassen, and included input from Robert van Galen, Barbara Rumora-Scheltema, Marc Orval, Teun Struycken, Catrien Rozeman, Tom de Clerck, Robert Woudenberg, Saskia Heumakers, Bart Wijnstekers and Boudewijn Smit.
