GLG LITIGATION | ATTORNEYS AT LAW
On December 28, 2009, the Netherlands implemented the European Services Directive (Directive 2006/123/EC). The Dutch Civil Code includes the obligation that service providers, including lawyers, are required to provide certain information prior to engaging a (potential) client. This information can be provided via a brochure, via the website of the relevant service provider or by sending or submitting the information provided. As of January 1, 2015, the said obligation has been included in the Netherlands Attorney Ordinance as well. GLG Litigation B.V. ("GLG Litigation") has opted to publish the said information on its website.
Organization and Services
GLG Litigation is a private limited liability company, registered in the Netherlands trade register of its Chamber of Commerce under reference 51706687. There are two advocates associated with GLG Litigation, who are employed by the said company. This concerns mr. B. Jongmans and mr. S.M. Andriesse. These advocates have registered the following principal (and secondary) legal practice areas in the Netherlands Bar’s register of legal areas: (1) Administrative Law; (1a) Administrative Procedural Law; (1b) European Law; and (1c) Enforcement Law. Based on this registration, they are required to obtain ten training credits per calendar year in each registered principal legal practice area in accordance with the standards set by the Netherlands Bar.
GLG Litigation is not affiliated with the optional legal disputes committee of the Netherlands Attorney Bar Association. GLG Litigation has made available an office complaints procedure in accordance with the model of the said Association. The said procedure applies to all rendered services of GLG Litigation.
GLG Litigation works on the basis of general terms and conditions, which are sent to (new) clients of the office with the engagement. GLG Litigation charges an hourly rate, plus VAT (whether or not plus third-party costs). GLG Litigation does not accept state subsidized cases. Furthermore, no services are rendered on a "no cure no pay" basis. New clients must identify themselves prior to any engagement. The contractual relationship between GLG Litigation and the client is governed by Netherlands law.
The general terms and conditions state that the Amsterdam court has the exclusive jurisdiction in the event of disputes between GLG Litigation and the client. GLG Litigation is insured through professional liability insurance from AON. This includes a deductible € 2,5 mln. per claim and a maximum coverage of € 2,5 mln. per contract year. Limitations of liability are included in the general conditions. The said condition included a limitation to the amount that is covered by the professional liability insurance, increased with the deductible that remains uninsured. GLG Litigation is affiliated with a foundation, in which funds are received from third parties and paid to the relevant client.
