Gosse Oosterhoff specialises in corporate litigation, with a focus on complex or multi-party proceedings in the fields of directors' liability and M&A. In addition, he advises on financial reporting law and disciplinary law and is part of the NautaDutilh team handling Supreme Court appeals.
Gosse represents both Dutch and international clients and is, for example, currently acting for a trust company and a former director of a large financial institution in directors' liability disputes. He is regularly involved in groundbreaking cases and cases with a high media profile. Past cases include representing ArcelorMittal in litigation with certain hedge funds on the exchange ratio applied in ArcelorMittal's cross-border merger.
Before shifting his focus to corporate litigation, Gosse spent several years working on mergers and acquisitions in relation to both listed and non-listed companies. Representative transactions include Ordina's hostile takeover bid for PinkRoccade and Endemol's initial public offering on Euronext Amsterdam.
Gosse studied at Université Pierre Mendes-France in Grenoble, France, and at the University of Amsterdam, where he graduated with degrees in Dutch corporate law, in international law and in international relations in 2000. He joined NautaDutilh in the same year and in 2006 spent a year at the firm's New York office.
As a fellow of the Radboud University Nijmegen, Gosse regularly teaches and publishes on corporate law while also working on his PhD. He is on the editorial board of the Journal of Financial Reporting (Tijdschrift voor Jaarrekeningenrecht) and a member of the Corporate Litigation Association (Vereniging Corporate Litigation) and the Dutch Association for Procedural Law (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Procesrecht).
