In the individual rankings senior partners Michaela Ulrici and Leo Groothuis were ranked ‘Band 1’. Managing partner and co-head of our Capital Markets team Petra Zijp received the accolade 'Eminent Practitioner'.
Our Securitisations and Dispute Resolution teams are among the select group of 'Band 1' departments.
Chambers lauds our 'market-leading securitisation practice' that is the go-to team for both banks and other financial sector clients for advice on RMBS transactions and covered bonds placements. Clients praise team leads Arjan Scheltema and Michaëla Ulrici for being 'pragmatic and able to give good advice' and their 'vast experience and deep legal knowledge'.
According to Chambers our Dispute Resolution team has a 'leading presence in the enforcement and setting aside of arbitral awards'. We are also esteemed for our litigation practice, 'representing clients in class actions and commercial cases, including post-M&A and shareholder disputes' as well as our Supreme Court capabilities. Clients commend notable practitioner Paul Olden's ability 'to generate a trusted relationship which allows him to be robust in the advice that he gives'.
"As a law firm one of the things we cherish most are the strong ties with our clients. These rankings are a testimony of our continued reciprocal trust", says Managing partner Petra Zijp.
