As the leading financial law firm in the Netherlands, we assist our accountancy firms whenever the regulator reaches out. We give guidance with respect to the legal framework, supervise applications, notifications, review procedures and other contacts with the regulator, advise on the use of regulatory instruments and investigations, and provide judicial and extrajudicial assistance in enforcement procedures.
In addition to our legal analysis, we also provide specific advice on the follow-up steps should certain issues be identified. Whenever necessary, we reach out to regulators such as The Dutch Central Bank ('DNB'), the Netherlands Authority for Consumers & Markets ('ACM'), the Dutch Data Protection Authority (the 'AP') and the Financial Supervision Office ('BFT'). Our broad experience allows us to assist in administrative law subjects such as requests relating to the Dutch Government Information Public Access Act ('Wob') and the Dutch Open Government Act ('Woo').
