Due to Government measures to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus all courthouses in the Netherlands were closed to the public from 17 March 2020 through mid-May. Effective 1 June 2020, the NCC courthouse will be accessible to lawyers and parties if the court orders a courtroom hearing. However, some restrictions will still apply.

Who we are

The Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC District Court and NCC Court of Appeal) is well positioned to swiftly and effectively resolve international business disputes.

It is built on a solid foundation: the reputation of the Dutch judiciary, which is ranked among the most efficient, reliable and transparent worldwide. And the Netherlands – and Amsterdam in particular – are a prime location for business, and a gateway to Europe.

Proceedings are in English. Judgments are in English. The NCC has the tools to communicate effectively and provide swift and firm guidance in complex litigation.

The Netherlands Commercial Court was created on 1 January 2019.
