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.

This enables the NCC to deal with IP cases which require a high level of specialist expertise. Due to the international nature of many IP cases and clients, the ability to litigate in the English language allows for direct interaction between parties, their lawyers and the court. This in turn will enable the court to better understand parties’ interests and will reduce translation costs. </span></div><div><span><br></span></div><div><span>Read our <a href="/SiteCollectionDocuments/factsheet-netherlands-commercial-court-and-intellectual-property.pdf" title="factsheet-netherlands-commercial-court-and-intellectual-property.pdf">factsheet on NCC and Intellectual Property  <span class="rnl-file-properties">(pdf, 576.6 KB)</span></a>for more information.</span></div><div><br><br></div><p><br></p>
